Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, September 4


Agricultural law specialist Roger McEowen reports on several new
court rulings of interest to agricultural producers, including
decisions on a case over a farmer taking township road maintenance
into his own hands, and on one which tested the extent of a state's
right-to-farm law

A guest speaker at K-State last week, University of California-Davis
agricultural economist Julian Alston, discusses the two topics he
addressed during his visit:  the impact of agricultural policy on the
obesity problem in the U.S., which his research indicates is being
fully misconstrued; and what he sees as a glaring need for more
public investment in agricultural research

And K-State's Gus van der Hoeven presents "Stop, Look and Listen",
his weekly commentary on rural Kansas

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
