 Two days of comprehensive, hands-on learning await participants of the 2018 WSU Wheat Academy. Growers and industry professionals from all over the Pacific Northwest are invited to the WSU Pullman campus December 11 and 12 to learn about the science behind wheat management recommendations directly from the experts during intensive, 90-minute presentations.

The Wheat Academy will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 11 and will be held in the Vogel Plant Biosciences Building Teaching Laboratories on the WSU Pullman campus. Registration is $75 for growers and $125 for industry representatives and is limited to the first 75 registrants. The registration fee covers parking on campus, two lunches, a catered social hour that will be at the $15 million Small Grains Plant Growth Facility and light refreshments throughout the two-day event. Because registration is limited, we ask that individual companies limit the number of employees they send to the Wheat Academy to a maximum of 10.

We have applied for Pesticide Recertification Credits for Idaho and Washington. We have applied for Pesticide Credits for the following courses: Identifying and Managing Insect Pests on the Farm, Pulse Crop Production, and Herbicide Decisions in Integrated Weed Management Systems. Certified Crop Adviser Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for all courses.

The Wheat Academy is full! Please contact Blythe Howell via email at blythe.howell@wsu.edu to be put on the waitlist.
