Two days of comprehensive, hands-on learning await participants of the annual WSU Extension Wheat Academy. Growers and industry professionals from all

over the Pacific Northwest are invited to the WSU Pullman campus December 12 and 13 to learn about disease diagnostics, wheat management, soil health, wheat breeding, and much more directly from the experts during intensive, 90-minute presentations.

The Wheat Academy will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 12 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. Registration is limited to the first 75 registrants. The registration fee covers parking on campus, two lunches, a catered social hour sponsored by the Washington Association of Wheat Growers, 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 as well as Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits for Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. We have been approved for 3 Nutrient Management, 6 Integrated Pest Management, and 10.5 Crop Management Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for Certified Crop Advisors.
