MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A panel of six former agriculture secretaries will give the next installment of the Landon Lecture series at Kansas State University.

The Manhattan Mercury (http://is.gd/mhsKIr ) reports that the Oct. 21 event at McCain Auditorium will take the form of a question-and-answer session. The panelists will be Mike Johanns, Ann Veneman, Dan Glickman, Mike Espy, Clayton Yeutter and John Block.

University chief of staff Jackie Hartman says that having six agriculture leaders share the same stage is "nothing short of monumental." The speakers were picked as the school celebrates its 100th anniversary and birth as a land-grant institution.

The Landon Lecture is named for Gov. Alf Landon, a Republican who was Kansas governor from 1933 to 1937. Landon lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1936 presidential election.
