Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, January 23


Another topic featured at the Cover Your Acres Winter Conference in
Oberlin earlier this week:  USDA soil scientist based in Akron, Colorado,
Merle Vigil, looks at cropping intensity in no-till systems, and just how
far a producer can go with their crop production in dry growing
conditions....he cites many years of research on various High Plains
crop rotation approaches
 
K-State soil management specialist DeAnn Presley talks about what
more can be done to reduce serious wind erosion at this point in the
winter, in the wake of major soil blowing events in western Kansas
the last few weeks
 
And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist Ward
Upham looks at a recent study on garden tomato production, comparing
"heirloom" and modern tomato varieties
