Agronomist Kevin Price and veterinarian Deon van der Merwe of K-State

collecting valuable data from agricultural land...something they've
been field-testing at length in recent years...with cameras on board,
these aircraft can generate information for an extensive array of
agricultural land management purposes

The trademark program coordinator with the Kansas Department of
Agriculture, Becky Sullivan, talks about the revival of the "From the
Land of Kansas" trademark program for Kansas grown foods and other

And K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee talks about why
controlling the spread of bush honeysuckle in Kansas is important for
wildlife habitat management, as well as for other reasons
