Advancing wheat seed industry

Wheat seed industry stakeholders from across Oklahoma gathered in Oklahoma City, Feb. 24, to discuss the issues surrounding seed production. Speakers such as Daryl Strouts, executive director of the Kansas Wheat Alliance, and Mark Hodges, executive director of Plains Grains, Inc., emphasized the need for a healthy wheat seed industry. Strouts discussed the importance of planting certified seed in controlling yield and quality. Hodges emphasized the quality message, explaining to producers how improving the quality of Oklahoma wheat can improve its marketability.

Other speakers included: John Moffat, wheat breeder, AgriPro; Brett Carver, wheat breeder, Oklahoma State; Frank Gilstrap, center director, Dallas, Texas A&M University; Allan Fritz, wheat breeder, Kansas State; and Jeff Krehbiel, wheat producer, Hydro, Okla. The meeting was sponsored by AgriPro Wheat, Syngenta Crop Protection, Oklahoma Seed Trade Association, Oklahoma Crop Improvement Association, Oklahoma Foundation Seed Stocks, Oklahoma Wheat Growers Association, and the Oklahoma Wheat Commission.
