Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, April 25


A guest speaker at K-State's Department of Agronomy this week,
University of Illinois weed scientist Pat Tranel, talks about his
research work on waterhemp herbicide resistance: why this is such a
difficult weed issue to contend with, and what it means for future
management of this and other weed resistance problems at the farm
level

A USDA plant pathologist based at K-State, Bob Bowden, talks about
the ongoing battle against rust disease in wheat, as new races of
rust have overcome the resistance built into several wheat varieties
in recent years...his research focuses on finding new genetic answers
to the problem

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Ward Upham looks at broadleaf weed control in lawns, and the likely
extent of freeze damage to garden fruit plants
