NDSU Sets Best of the Best in Wheat and Soybean Meetings

These meetings will review research findings on issues that impact wheat and soybean production in the region.

Four Best of the Best in Research and Marketing meetings have been set for February in Grand Forks, Moorhead, Minn., Minot and Bismarck.

The first series of meetings will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Moorhead on Feb. 4 and at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks on Feb. 5.

These meetings will review research findings on issues that impact wheat and soybean production in the region. Topics include protein in wheat, managing soybean cyst nematode in soybeans and the value of seed treatments. Both meetings begin at 8:30 a.m.

The second series of meetings will begin in Minot at the Holiday Inn on Feb. 12 and be followed by a meeting at the Ramada Inn in Bismarck on Feb. 13. Both meetings begin at 9 a.m.

These meetings will focus primarily on issues related to wheat production and marketing. Topics include managing herbicide-resistant weeds, nitrogen and sulfur management, and best management practices for durum.

Hands-on demonstrations are planned at all of the locations.

“These hands-on demonstrations always are popular because participants get a chance to interact with the presenters and see and touch what is being described,” says Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University Extension agronomist and one of the meeting organizers.

A noon lunch will be provided at each venue. There is no participation fee but advanced registration is requested.

To register, go to http://www.smallgrains.org or North Dakota residents can call (701) 328-5111. Minnesota residents should call (800) 242-6118, ext. 3.

These meetings are sponsored by the Minnesota and North Dakota wheat and soybean growers and checkoff organizations in conjunction with the University of Minnesota and NDSU Extension Services.
