Wheat Crops in North Dakota Impacted by Drought

Wed, 28 Jul 2021 10:53:57 CDT

Wheat Crops in North Dakota Impacted by Drought Most of the country has been significantly impacted by the drought, and spring wheat growers are seriously affected. To gain a better understanding of the drought’s effect, National Association of Wheat Grower’s CEO, Chandler Goule, and National Wheat Foundation project manager, Anne Osborne, are attending the Wheat Quality Council’s 2021 Hard Spring and Durum Wheat Tour.

By gaining this firsthand experience, Goule will be able to better represent the NAWG state members and create a more unified voice for the industry as NAWG advocates for wheat farmers in Washington, D.C. Crop insurance, disaster assistance, and additional funding for breeding programs for more resilient crops are among the many programs NAWG continues to promote on Capitol Hill and with the Administration.

“We are looking forward to learning more from wheat producers on the ground this week and understand the ways NAWG can better advocate for the common good of the industry,” said CEO, Chandler Goule. “We always want to listen and understand how policies or current situations are impacting wheat growers, and being able to attend these tours provides that instrumental opportunity.”

Anne Osborne, project manager for the National Wheat Foundation, benefits from the networking on the tour. “The people on the tour are interested in promoting high-quality, profitable wheat just like The Foundation is doing,” Osborne said. “They may be interested in participating in our National Wheat Yield contest or helping with some of our other projects about high quality, high profit, or nutrition through wheat.”

Engaging with breeders, food scientists, millers, bakers, producers, input providers, nutritionists, and consumers allows NAWG and NWF to develop meaningful research projects and education programs that will increase the value of wheat for all segments.
