Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, September 5

A guest speaker on the K-State campus this week, USDA rangeland
researcher Justin Derner, talks about innovative management of
pastures and range amidst long-term drought:  he discusses what his
research center has discovered about such ideas as grass reserves as
part of a grazing program, patch burning and varying up the kinds of
cattle grazing a given area

From the Kansas Forest Service at K-State, Larry Biles and Leah
Rutledge invite landowners to take advantage of the fall conservation
tree ordering season for establishing windbreaks, shelterbelts and
other conservation plantings this fall...they'll cover the species
available and how to place those low-cost conservation tree orders

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Dennis Patton talks about home lawn maintenance and improvements
during the month of September
