The Oklahoma Wheat Commission will be holding an election for District 1 on May 13, said Mike Schulte, Oklahoma Wheat Commission executive director.
District 1 includes Alfalfa, Grant and Major Counties and will take place at the Alfalfa County Fairgrounds, 602 West Fifth Street, Cherokee, Okla.
All wheat producers within District 1 boundaries who are actively engaged in wheat production, have marketed wheat, and have paid a check-off fee and left that fee with the Commission for the current year are eligible to vote.
It will be the responsibility of the producer to prove their eligibility to vote by providing a dated grain elevator receipt including the producerís name and amount of wheat sold, and a driverís license or some other form of identification.
Candidates must be at least 25 years of age, an Oklahoma resident and grow wheat as an occupation for at least five years.
Lunch will be provided for attendees of the board meeting.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m. and there will be a presentation from Dr. Chris Giles, OSU Regents Professor of Entomology and Plant Pathology.
Giles will talk a bout where have all the insects gone.
It has a lot to do with why we are not seeing so many insects based on the technologies we have implemented with our breeding program, Schulte said.
