New fortnightly Tramlines Podcast launched

Tramlines podcast

A fortnightly podcast bringing farmers and their advisers the latest intelligence on topical issues and concerns in informative, light-hearted discussions with industry experts has been launched this spring by leading agronomy, technology and advice provider, Agrii.

Ideal for tractor-cab listening, each 20 min Tramlines discussion hosted by experienced West Country-based farming presenter, Tony Smith is designed to bring a key topic to life in an engaging and enlightening way.

The series kicks-off this week (April 29) with thought-provoking insights into the whys, whats, wheres and whens of farmland bee, bird and biodiversity improvement with well-known farmed wildlife consultant, author and trainer, Marek Nowakowski.

Also available from Day One are episodes on sustainable food production and the use of science to manage soils; the role and value of arable seed treatments; the ins and outs of fruit agronomy; and better decision-making with digital data.

“With Tramlines we want to share timely intelligence on agronomy and technologies from people who really know what they’re talking about in the most convenient and accessible way,” says Agrii marketing manager and podcast co-ordinator, Rachel Watling.

“As well as experts from across our research and development, crop protection, nutrition, seed, digital, environmental and other teams, Tony will be working with leading independent specialists, advisers and farmers to build a library of informative technical listening for the farming community.

“Tramlines will complement our existing year-round programme of iFarm and Technology Centre meetings, visits, video tours and webinars with another way of keeping abreast of developments in this fast-changing industry of ours,” she adds.

Available free of charge for on-line listening at or through Google Podcasts, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other major providers, the new podcast is being developed closely with growers across the country to focus on the things that will make the most difference to their farming.
