Watch ‘Today’s Ag’ on Channel 15 KVRR-TV Fargo
"Today’s Ag," the only agriculture program on television backed by land grant universities, is now on the air in North Dakota. Thanks to a new partnership with Channel 15 KVRR-TV in Fargo, Today's Ag airs Sunday mornings at 6:30 a.m. beginning Nov. 23.
"Today’s Ag" is a weekly half hour magazine program. It features stories about the people, the issues, the business and the science of agriculture. North Dakota State University is one of several land-grant universities that contribute to the program.
"The program allows us to highlight NDSU research and outreach expertise that has value for people in the region," says Randy Wald, NDSU agriculture communication specialist who coordinates NDSU’s contributions to the program. "We focus specifically on stories about agriculture and rural communities and look for information that helps viewers become more informed about issues and decisions they face."
"Today’s Ag" covers more than agriculture, according to Carrie Law, who hosts the weekly show.
"We also talk about new ideas that can boost rural economies. We talk about family issues ranging from new food products to identity theft. We describe how national events impact rural areas," Law said. "Most importantly, we feature the latest scientific breakthroughs at land grant universities."
"Today's Ag" is also broadcast on television stations across the Midwest, and several times each week on RFD-TV. Other states that are partners in the program include Iowa State University, University of Nebraska, and South Dakota State University.
