The Oklahoma Wheat Growers’ Association has announced that it will host its annual convention next month at the Redlands Community College Conference Center in El Reno, Oklahoma. Producers from across the state will gather to learn about the very latest techniques and strategies to enhance the quality of their crops as well as their production abilities, from a knowledgeable and well-versed slate of guest speakers.
Members of the Oklahoma State University Wheat Improvement Team will share a comprehensive review of diseases that affected producers this year and the recommended fungicide applications. They will also offer information on new varieties, ways to enhance protein content, soil fertilization options, and other topics of interest to the wheat producer. Those scheduled to present include Dr. Bob Hunger, Dr. Brett Carver, Dr. David Marburger and Dr. Brian Arnall.
Additionally, Mark Hodges of Plains Grains Inc. will give an overview of the quality aspects of this past year’s harvest, with particular emphasis on wheat varieties known for ideal milling and baking qualities.
Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson will also provide an outlook on the wheat market, followed by Vice President of the National Association of Wheat Growers, Jimmie Musick of Sentinel, Oklahoma who will brief attendees on activities in Washington, D.C. and how Oklahoma wheat producers’ membership in the OWGA directly shapes federal policies that impact them and their operations.
The convention is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. on August 3, 2017 at the Redlands Community College Conference Center in El Reno, Oklahoma. There is no charge for current members to attend, although, non-members will be charged $50 for admission, which will also cover their membership for the coming year. All growers in Oklahoma are encouraged to attend as OWGA represents the interest of all wheat producers. Early registration closes July 26th and is encouraged.
