Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, November 1


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

K-State agricultural economist Bill Golden talks about his analysis
of the value of water in the Ogallala Aquifer: how that value
differs between production agriculture and other users, and why that
is significant to water policy decisions

The watershed management section chief with the Kansas Department of
Health and Environment, Jaime Gaggero, discusses the Watershed
Restoration and Protection Strategy program, or WRAPS: its current
activity in Kansas, and how it works with landowners to improve water
quality in streams and rivers

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Ward Upham looks at late-fall lawn management, including nitrogen
applications and broadleaf weed control
