K-State agricultural economist Dan O'Brien previews the USDA's May
world grain supply and demand report coming out this morning, as part
of his weekly commentary on the grain market trends.

K-State agronomist Nathan Nelson tells of his new research project,
which will refine a method of evaluating phosphorus loss from crop
fields, called the phosphorus index...this will provide producers
better guidance in nutrient application management, while also
addressing phosphorus load issues in surface water resources.

And state climatologist Mary Knapp of K-State reports on Kansas
agricultural weather.

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