Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, April 23


New K-State precision agricultural engineer Ajay Sharda talks
about advancements in field sprayer technology that he'll be
researching at the university, and passes along some
recommendations to producers and commercial applicators
about readying their spray rigs for this year's field work, giving
special attention to the rate control systems on those units

K-State entomologist Jim Nechols looks at a discovery in the area of
biological control of weeds that will be important to that weed
management approach in the future: the changes in weed plants
resulting from one insect's feeding that may render another
biologically-beneficial insect ineffective as a weed control weapon

K-State graduate and long-time University of Illinois meat scientist
Tom Carr reflects on his highly-successful career, as he was just honored
as this year's Alumni Fellow by the K-State College of Agriculture

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