Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, August 22

Two features from the K-State Risk and Profit Conference taking place
this week at the university:

University of Illinois agricultural economist Scott Irwin talks about
the future of the Renewable Fuels Standard, which greatly influences
the grain markets, and the modificatons the Environmental Protection
Agency will likely make to the RFS...the result, he says, could mean
a shift of emphasis from corn-based ethanol to soybean-based biofuels

Rawlins County farmer and former K-State agricultural economist
Terry Kastens offers thoughts on progressive farm management and what
approaches have worked for his operation...he was in the spotlight
for the conference's "Conversation with a Kansas Farmer" session

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Ward Upham advises on fall lawn seeding and grass seed selection

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which
collectively reach 75 counties in Kansas, parts of southern Nebraska, eastern
Colorado and northern Oklahoma...the broadcast can also be heard over the
K-State Radio Network website. Also see the Agriculture Today archives.
