My guest today is Rob Stone, a 4th generation farmer in Saskatchewan, Canada. Rob also worked as the director of the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) which works at helping grow the Saskatchewan wheat industry. In our chat today, Rob and I talk about his family’s history in farming, no-till and glyphosate usage on the farm, environmental issues, and much more!
