Attention Kansas wheat growers: It's time to enhance your wheat production knowledge. K-State Research and Extension, in collaboration with Kansas Wheat, is organizing informative meetings in Dodge City (March 7) and Wichita (March 8).

These sessions, known as Kansas Wheat Rx, aim to deliver expert advice on achieving high-yielding and high-quality wheat in an environmentally friendly way.

The meetings are set to offer a blend of management practices tailored for the cost-effective and sustainable production of premium winter wheat in Kansas.

This initiative is grounded in research from Kansas State University, with financial support from Kansas Wheat, a partnership between the Kansas Wheat Commission and the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers.

The Dodge City gathering will take place at the Depot Theater, 201 E. Wyatt Earp Blvd, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Similarly, the Wichita meeting is scheduled at the Doubletree Hotel at the Airport, 2098 Airport Road, during the same hours.

There's good news for members of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers: Registration is free. For non-members, a $110 fee applies, which includes a KAWG membership.

Participants will benefit from insights shared by a distinguished panel of wheat experts from K-State, including Romulo Lollato, Carlos Bonini Pires, Kelsey Andersen Onfore, Dorivar Ruiz Diaz, Dan O’Brien, Gregg Ibendahl, and Logan Simon.

The discussions will cover a range of topics, from cover crops and soil health to soil fertility, wheat diseases, fungicides, and the economics of wheat farming.The full agenda can be found online.

Aaron Harries, vice president of research and operations for Kansas Wheat, emphasizes the goal of equipping wheat producers with the necessary knowledge to maximize profitability, leveraging new varieties and best management practices despite the unpredictable impact of weather.

Kansas Wheat's significant investment in K-State's research aims to enhance variety selection and introduce practices and tools to elevate wheat quality. This collaborative effort underscores a commitment to supporting Kansas wheat growers in navigating the challenges and opportunities in wheat production.
