Join the Oklahoma Wheat Growers’ Association on January 9 for the 2018 area meeting. Another meeting will be held for the Enid area on Tuesday, January 23 (an email will be sent at a later time for the Enid meeting). Scheduled presentations include:
 
Enhancing Oklahoma Wheat Production AND End-Use Quality
This presentation will highlight best management practices for increasing wheat forage and grain production and profitability, discuss end-use quality characteristics, and emphasize how greater production and quality can both be achieved.
David A. Marburger, Ph.D., Small Grains Specialist, Oklahoma State University
 
When Soil Fertility Meets Wheat Breeding
In 2012, southwest Oklahoma started out as a clandestine home of some off-the-beaten path wheat research. It wasn’t totally undercover; after all, the federal government essentially told us that Great Plains wheat breeders should know more about nitrogen-use efficiency in the winter wheat gene pool. In 2017, the southwest agronomy research station at Tipton, OK now plays an integral role in OSU wheat breeding research and variety development. This presentation will tell what happens when soil fertility meets wheat breeding and how the courtship will continue.
Brett Carver, Ph.D., Wheat Breeder and Wheat Improvement Team Lead, Oklahoma State University
