New NDSU podcast service available

Farm Forum

Sound Ag Advice is an agricultural news podcast available from the North Dakota State University Extension Service at

A new podcast is posted each week. The podcasts feature agricultural topics ranging from rangeland management to crop prices. Each podcast is three to four minutes long.

“The great thing about podcasts is that the information is given directly to the listener, which is more intimate than reading an email or document,” says Bob Bertsch, NDSU Extension Web technology specialist. “Podcasts also are convenient because listeners decide where and when they want to hear it.”

Listeners can download the podcasts or subscribe to them through My Yahoo, iTunes or Google. Listeners also can receive email notification when new podcasts become available.

Subscribers using iTunes will have access to the podcasts on their iPhone, iPad, iPod or computer. Android phone or tablet users can subscribe to the service by downloading a free podcast player app.

“These podcasts are just another example of how the NDSU Extension Service is bringing North Dakotans research-based information to help improve their lives,” says Charlie Stoltenow, NDSU Extension Service assistant director for agriculture and natural resources.
