Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, September 11

K-State cropping systems specialist Ignacio Ciampitti talks about a
simplified method of estimating soybean yields during these final
stages of the growing season, accounting for row spacing, pod count,
seeds per pod and seed size...he walks through an example of how that
formula works

K-State row crop disease specialist Doug Jardine follows up with word
on late-season disease problems in soybeans--namely, sudden death
syndrome and charcoal rot--as well as stalk rot in corn...and why
scouting for those now will provide useful information for next
year's production

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