Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, October 31

Two features from the Governor's Conference on the Future of Water in
Kansas, co-hosted by K-State Research and Extension this week:

A political scientist from IUPUI, Bill Bloomquist, talks about his
extensive research into what makes for successful water use policy
that satisfies all the stakeholders involved...with his observations
on how Kansas water policy stacks up to those principles

The director of the Kansas Water Office, Tracy Streeter, talks about
a couple of the lead topics discussed at the conference regarding the
preservation of the Ogallala Aquifer: the local enhanced management
area concept for groundwater management districts, and the pending
creation of crop insurance coverage for limited irrigation crops

The state entomologist with the Kansas Department of Agriculture,
Greg Chrislip, advises Kansans to refrain from transporting firewood
over long distances this fall and winter, to curtail the spread of
several harmful tree insects and diseases

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
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which
