The administrator of the Kansas Agriculture in the Classroom program,

to incorporate agricultural themes into public school education: she
looks ahead to a series of KFAC workshops for teachers coming up in
January and February, and tells of a sponsorship campaign for
supporting the program



K-State plant geneticist Richard Todd tells of his current research
into the genetic regulators that determine how a crop disease is
nourished, so that one day, those regulators can be controlled as a
defense against crop pathogens



Agricultural law specialist Roger McEowen discusses a recent court
ruling on the introduction of a genetically-modifed strain of rice
into the market several years ago, over which a group of growers sued
for damages because of a subsequent drop in rice prices



And K-State's Gus van der Hoeven presents "Stop, Look and Listen",
his weekly commentary on rural Kansas
