K-State grain market economist Dan O'Brien looks ahead to the USDA

numbers...he also talks about the current corn-to-soybean price
ratio, as an early indicator of planting intentions next spring.

The associate director of the International Grains Program at
K-State, Mark Fowler, talks about the array of I-G-P educational
efforts of late, in promoting use of U.S. grains abroad...he also
talks about a series of grain dust safety workshops coming up, for
elevator operators as well as grain producers with on-farm storage.

And K-State climatologist Mary Knapp reports on Kansas agricultural
weather.

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