Agriculture Today Radio Program Friday, August 23

K-State agricultural economist Dan O' Brien passes along his latest
price probability projections for wheat, feedgrains and soybeans, and
looks at possible price levels for crop insurance coverage, during
his grain market segment for this week...drawing from his
presentation at K-State's Risk and Profit Conference.

The director of the Wheat Genetics Resource Center at K-State,
Bikram Gill, talks about the selection of K-State as the home for the
National Science Foundation's Industry/University Cooperative
Research Center for wheat...and he's joined by USDA researcher
Guihua Bai, for a look at a new breakthrough in wheat genetics that
may be the answer to pre-harvest sprouting problems in wheat,
particularly white wheat varieties.

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
