Agriculture Today Radio Program Thursday, December 6


K-State agronomist Kraig Roozeboom discusses cropping systems that
promote water use efficiency, centering on cropping intensity,
selection and management...he suggests that farmers think about
flexible crop rotations that can respond to changes in water
availability

K-State crop entomologist Jeff Whitworth talks about the university's
current study on fall insecticide treatments against alfalfa weevils,
as that pest has become even more prolific in recent years...he says
this project has already uncovered a surprising finding about weevil
activity

And for this week's horticulture segment, K-State horticulturist
Dennis Patton talks about planting spring-flowering bulbs this late
in the year, and advises gardeners to conduct their soil testing now
