Fall Wheat Conference Wraps Up in New Mexico

The 2014 Joint Fall Wheat Conference of the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) and U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) concluded Saturday in Santa Ana, N.M. The four-day meeting brought together wheat growers from around the country to discuss upcoming issues and to plan for the year ahead.

“It is a sign of the strength of the grain chain that we had so many great representatives of wheat in one place. I am very satisfied with the progress we made on how we can better advance the U.S. wheat industry,” said NAWG president, Paul Penner, farmer from Hillsboro, Kan. “I appreciate our partners at USW and the strong relationship we continue to have.”

The National Wheat Foundation also met during the meetings to discuss current projects and programs. Throughout the conference, board members of NAWG and USW were able to meet and discuss issues ranging from biotechnology, trade policy, and environmental and renewable resources. During the sessions, wheat industry partners presented and discussed current issues impacting production, distribution, and trade, as well as what challenges and promises the future may hold.

Thanks to the NAWG industry partners who were part of the meetings, including: BNSF, BASF, CoBANK, Dow AgroSciences, FMC, John Deere, Monsanto, Syngenta, Arcadia Biosciences, Bayer CropScience, Cargill and U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc.

The next joint meeting will be held January 27-31 in Washington, D.C.
