On Feb. 6 the Nebraska Wheat Growers Association announced the first in a series of educational events for Nebraska's wheat producers. The series is designed to provide seasonally appropriate information during all phases of wheat crop production. Each part of the series will be scheduled to coincide with Nebraska Wheat Growers Association and Nebraska Wheat Board meetings and will be held at various locations throughout the state.
The first event will be held March 18 beginning at 8 a.m., at the Holiday Inn-Downtown, 141 N 9th Street, Lincoln, NE 68508. Although the event is free to wheat producers, preregistration by March 4 is required. A complete registration brochure with schedule and program information can be found on the Nebraska Wheat website at www.nebraskawheat.com. Registrations will be accepted by mail, fax or e-mail.
Nebraska wheat is widely recognized in the industry for its consistent high quality, versatility and reliability. Producers will benefit from information provided from University of Nebraska experts in wheat breeding and production. Presenters include Dr. Stephen Baenziger, Dr. Tom Clemente, Dr. Stephen Wegulo, Dr. Gary Hein and Tom Dorn from Lancaster County Extension. Tours of the Wheat Quality Lab and greenhouses where wheat crossing will be occurring are included in the day's activities.
NWB will meet on March 16 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and March 17 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The NWGA will meet on March 17 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Both meetings will be held at the Holiday Inn-Downtown, are open to the public, and all wheat producers are encouraged to attend.
