Wheat industry opportunities and challenges will be discussed during the North Dakota Wheat Commission’s (NDWC) Annual Meeting for County Representatives on December 14-15 in Bismarck. The NDWC has 53 county representatives elected by the state’s wheat producers.

The meeting will open with a luncheon on Dec. 14 at the Ramkota Inn, featuring comments by NDWC Chairman Francis Leiphon, followed by an update on NDSU wheat research.

Other highlights during the two day meeting will include a discussion about the potential elimination of the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly, an update on trade and domestic policy, the domestic industry’s perspective on durum and HRS quality trends, and a very timely panel on the direction of wheat breeding programs. U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) vice-chairman, Darrell Davis will also provide an update on USW activities.

The meeting will close with district roundtable discussion of important issues facing ND wheat producers and how the NDWC can help address the challenges and optimize opportunities.
