Do you want to stay up-to-date on the markets? Learn how to run your farm operation more efficiently? Serve your grower customers more effectively? If your answer is "yes" to any of these, just grab your smartphone and prepare to listen on the go, because Farm Journal Media has a podcast for you.

If you're unfamiliar with podcasts, the best way to understand them is to think of them as a radio show or television show you can listen to at your convenience. Some are recorded versions of Farm Journal shows, such as Market Rally with Chip Flory or AgriTalk with Mike Adams, which are broadcast on radio and television stations. Others are special audio shows only available via podcast.

Either way, you can access these podcasts with the MyFarmRadio or MyFarmTV apps, which are free and available for Apple and Android devices.

You can also find some of these on iTunes, which allows you to subscribe for free and never miss an episode. (Go to the “Podcasts” app on your iPhone or iPad and type the show name into the search box to find them.)
