With increasing spring and fall workloads, problematic pests, and a goal of crop diversity, interest in growing wheat remains steady. The first objective of this program is to help farmers determine if wheat will work on their farm, in their rotation, and if it can be profitable. The second objective is to hand farmers the tools needed to make wheat a successful crop on their operation. This includes information on production agronomics, variety selection, disease identification and fungicide use, fertility, quality, and economics. Time will be set aside for open forum to discuss related topics and on farm experiences. Agendas, presenters, and topics will vary by location so please check with local contacts for specific format.
