Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, November 14


An extended look at a relatively new program operated by the Kansas
Department of Commerce: the Kansas Rural Opportunity Zone Program,
which encourages in-migration to rural Kansas communities through
income tax relief and student loan payoff incentives...the program
manager, Chris Harris, talks about the program's mission of enticing
people back to one of the 50 participating rural counties, and how
interested individuals can take advantage of it

The executive officer of the Farm Service Agency in Kansas, Jack
Salava, offers a reminder that the USDA is now accepting
discrimination restitution claims from female or Hispanic
agricultural producers who qualify under an earlier court ruling

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

collectively reach 75 counties in Kansas, parts of southern Nebraska,
eastern Colorado and northern Oklahoma...the broadcast can also be
