Agriculture Today Radio Program for Tuesday, Nov. 19


K-State weed management specialist Dallas Peterson talks about
controlling grassy weeds in two-gene Clearfield wheat varieties,
highlighting the control opportunities this seed technology provides,
as demonstrated in K-State field tests....also, K-State crop
entomologist Jeff Whitworth puts out an advisory on winter grain mite
activity in Kansas wheat currently.

The chief water engineer with the Kansas Department of Agriculture,
David Barfield, provides an update on the implementation of a local
enhanced management area, or L-E-M-A, in northwest Kansas for
groundwater management...he says that as irrigators in Sheridan
County are now putting that L-E-M-A into effect, other groundwater
management districts in Kansas are monitoring that process closely.

And K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee talks about the latest
concerns over chronic wasting disease, or C-W-D, in deer, citing
what's being done about that in the state of Wisconsin.


Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM),  which
collectively reach 75 counties in Kansas, parts of southern Nebraska,
eastern Colorado and northern Oklahoma...the broadcast can also be
heard over the K-State Research and Extension website.

Supported by county, state, federal and private funds, the program has county Extension offices, experiment fields, area Extension offices and regional research centers statewide. Its headquarters is on the K-State campus, Manhattan.
