The Nebraska wheat Growers Association announces the 2000 wheat Agri-Industry Tour, scheduled Feb. 24 to 26.

This year, the tour will be visiting the Chief Ethanol plant, in Hastings; two different straw built homes, in Lincoln; the University of Nebraska Agronomy Department; and the Kansas City Board of Trade.

"This is a great opportunity for everyone that wants to learn more about all of the exciting things happening in the wheat industry," said Brian Scebold, NWGA executive director.

"There are so many advancements being made in the field of research and alternative uses for wheat, that even I have a hard time keeping up with it. There are so many people that are working on the producers behalf in research, alternative use development and commodity trading, we thought it would be nice to recognize these individuals and give the producers a better understanding of what they do," continued Scebold.

The tour is open to the general public and costs $75 for NWGA members and $95 for non-members. This fee includes transportation, meals and lodging.

For more information, call the NWGA staff, at 308-284-6823.
