Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, January 17


Two topics that were addressed at K-State's Cover Your Acres winter
conference this week:

K-State agronomist John Holman talks more about his research on
inserting cover crops into wheat-fallow rotations...the resulting
impact on wheat yields, and how rotations featuring cover crops can
end up being profitable for the producer

K-State agronomist Lucas Haag discusses how to maximize water
conservation when managing the fallow portion of a rotation,
specifically to reduce evaporative losses during that time...he also
comments on why timing of weed control makes a major difference

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Ward Upham takes up several topics, including new lighting systems
now on the market for indoor gardeners

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which
