Two days of comprehensive, hands-on learning await participants of the 2019 WSU Wheat Academy. Growers and industry professionals from all over the Pacific Northwest are invited to the WSU Pullman campus December 10 and 11 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 10 and will be held in the Vogel Plant Biosciences Building Teaching Laboratories on the WSU Pullman campus. Registration is $75 for growers and $150 for industry representatives and is limited to the first 75 registrants. The registration fee covers parking on campus, two lunches, a lightly catered social hour, 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.

  • Diagnosing and Managing Plant Diseases of Wheat, Dr. Tim Murray and Rachel Bomberger
