'Best of the Best' wheat workshops scheduled

The "Best of the Best in Wheat Research and Marketing" workshops will be Jan. 31 in Dickinson and Feb. 8 in Minot, according to Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University Extension Service cereal crops agronomist.

The "Best of the Best in Wheat Research and Marketing" workshops will be Jan. 31 in Dickinson and Feb. 8 in Minot, according to Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University Extension Service cereal crops agronomist.

"The 'Best of the Best' wheat meetings have become a popular venue for wheat growers to learn the latest research findings and to receive advice on how to market their crops," Ransom says. "With wheat prices high, these meetings will be an excellent way for farmers growing more wheat to learn how to optimize returns. Last year these workshops were held in four locations and every meeting hall was filled to capacity."

Presentations will address the economics of production, marketing, disease and insect control, selecting new varieties and winter wheat. Hands-on demonstrations on durum quality, remote monitoring hardware and "fair rent" software also are scheduled.

The workshop in Dickinson will be at the Grand Dakota Lodge and in Minot at the International Inn. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. at both venues.

These meetings are organized by the NDSU Extension Service and sponsored by the North Dakota Wheat Commission and North Dakota Grain Growers Association. For further information, contact the North Dakota Wheat Commission, North Dakota Grain Growers Association or an NDSU Extension Service county office.
