EPISODE 145 – FACING YOUR FEARS IN AGRICULTURE WITH MARINA SCHMIDT
Marina’s title of farmwife started in 2019 when she married a farmer. It was a change of a lifetime to go from a small-town girl with no knowledge of agriculture to now living on a 100-acre family farm in Southwestern Ontario. She has jumped right in and has been learning how to drive equipment, take care of cattle, grow a garden, plant and harvest crops, and run a farm business with her husband and his brother, while working at a local hospital part time as an X-ray tech.
They just added a tiny farmer to the mix in spring 2021. Her life is hectic and she rarely knows what’s going on but this is the best life she could have ever asked for and she wouldn’t trade it for the world.

AGI Storm FX takes the guesswork out of seed treating.
Building on the success of previous models, the key functions of the AGI STORM FX have been refined through consultation with our current users. The AGI STORM FX has been engineered for accuracy, flexibility and mobility, gentle seed handling and easy clean-out, all while reducing user exposure.
Unlike other seed treaters, the AGI STORM FX accurately measures untreated seed directly from the bin, precisely meters and applies the seed treatment, gently mixes the seed for consistent, even coverage and then transfers the treated seed into the truck, ready to plant. The simplified process provided by the AGI STORM FX reduces user exposure, making in-the-yard seed treating safe, simple and convenient while giving you total control over the seed treating process.
