Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, November 15


K-State agronomist Jane Lingenfelser has the rundown on the
university's Grain Sorghum Performance Test results for this year,
which is useful information for producers in their seed selection
decisions, in spite of the test difficulties brought on by the
drought this year

USDA soil scientist Michel Cavigelli shares findings from his
extensive research into organic cropping systems, which has rendered
findings of possible use to conventional and no-till farmers as
well...he is a guest speaker at K-State's Department of Agronomy this
week

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Ward Upham looks at protecting landscape plants from winter
desiccation with a deep watering before the coldest weather sets in
