High Plains Journal will partner with Bayer CropScience again this year, along with KFRM Radio to host the 2009 Profit Maximizer Wheat Summit, August 25 at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, with activities extending from 9 am to 6 pm.
This all-inclusive one-day event promotes intensive wheat management techniques as a way to support Kansas and Oklahoma growers with improved profits for their individual farming operations.
Participation is open to the farming public, but reservations are required. Only 200 seats will be available at the event, which includes a continental breakfast, luncheon and promotional drawings. Attendees must register before August 10, 2009 by calling 1-877-365-4287 or signing-up on the web at www.events.SignUp4.com/bayerwheatmax09. Ag retailers and crop consultants are also welcome to attend with proper registration.
The 2009 Profit Maximizer Wheat Summit will host Oklahoma State University extension specialist Dr. Robert Hunger and Kansas State University extension specialists Dr. Dallas Peterson to discuss critical wheat disease management practices and weed control practices along with issues surrounding herbicide resistance. Additional speakers include Phil Needham, Needham Ag Technologies; Mark Gold, Top Third Ag Marketing; and Mark Pearson, ag economist and radio host. Each will discuss topics in support of abundant winter wheat production and marketing successes along with new technologies best suited for the Central Plains.
As part of the program, six farm operators from Kansas and Oklahoma will serve on a grower panel discussing their individual wheat management techniques and take questions from the audience.
High Plains Journal Editor Holly Martin, co-host and moderator for the 2008 Profit Maximizer Wheat Summit, says this year's event once again includes an impressive list of speakers. "Growers in attendance at this meeting can expect to walk away with greater knowledge about how to improve their winter wheat yields," she says. "Greater yields means great profitability - and the Wheat Summit is all about reaching greater levels of success through Kansas and Oklahoma wheat production."
