Agriculture Today Radio Program Tuesday, July 8

K-State crop entomologist Jeff Whitworth looks at the full complement of
insects now at work in Kansas summer crop fields, and the recommendations
for controlling them: in corn, rootworms, earworms and stink bugs; in soybeans,
stem borers, webworms and bean leaf beetles; in alfalfa, potato leafhoppers
and aphids; and in brome, armyworms....he talks about the threats each of
these pose to the respective crops, and at what point, if any, the grower
might contemplate treating them

K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee discusses a new study of exotic grass
species, primarily old world bluestem, encroaching on native grasslands, and
the ensuing impact on prairie wildlife
