Agriculture Today Radio Program Friday, December 16



K-State agricultural economist Dan O'Brien comments on the grain market trends:  he looks specifically at the shrinking presence of outside speculators in the grain trades, as a contributing factor to the dropoff in prices.


K-State agronomist Mike Stamm talks about the winter hardiness of canola: a major problem in the past that has been successfully addressed in the canola breeding program at K-State and elsewhere...he also looks at crop management for improving canola
survivability.


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


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 Radio Network web site
