'Backyard Farmer' is a hit on iTunes U and YouTube
Since 1953, the popular gardening show "Backyard Farmer" has been providing research-based answers to gardening questions about insect pests, fruits and vegetables, turf to landscape design and much more.
As it keeps up with the times, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension program has made a splash on iTunes U and YouTube. Backyard Farmer consistently is in the Top 10 of the science category and No. 17 overall on iTunes U--a distribution system for everything from lectures to language lessons, films to labs, audio books to tours and a way to get educational content into the hands of students and others.
Brad Mills, Backyard Farmer producer, said the long-running program consistently shows up on iTunes U every Friday by 1 p.m. giving anyone access to watch the program.
In addition to being popular in iTunes U, the show also receives thousands of hits on its YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/bucslim. Backyard Farmer is a production of the University of Nebraska Educational Media and the Nebraska Educational Television Network.
