Also, we talk with Dennis Todey. He is the director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Midwest Climate Hub in Ames about the possiblity of drought in Iowa this spring and summer.

And we learn about a new survey from Iowa State Extension and Outreach. It shows that farmers have more faith in climate change science than a few years ago, and they also are using more cultivation methods to improve the climate.

We also talk with baseball coach Bob Protexter about his work as coach for Russia's national team, and some activities he is organzing this weekend in Okoboji, at the time of the 41st Annual University of Okoboji Games.
