Brummond Announces Retirement

Walsh County Extension Agent Brad Brummond announced his retirement after 41 years in NDSU Extension. Brummond worked extensively in soil health and dry bean production and says tight rotations are the biggest challenge for dry bean producers. “We raise them too tight, so we end up with a lot of soil-borne diseases.” Brummond says below-ground pathogens can sneak up on producers and steal yields and recommends producers lift up plants to check roots.
