Share Tweet Email


Wheat Rx seminars are scheduled for February 8 in Wichita and on February 9 in Hays. Wheat Rx is partnership between Kansas Wheat and K-State Research and Extension to disseminate the latest research recommendations for high-yielding and high-quality wheat to Kansas wheat farmers.

These two Wheat Rx schools will have speakers that will discuss the most up-to-date wheat research information on how to manage your wheat crop not only for yield but also for quality and sustainability.

Registration for the event is $100 for non-members of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers. However, members (including new members) will receive one free registration. Lunch and meeting materials are included with the registration fee.
