Illinois Wheat Association To Hold Winter Wheat Forum

   The Illinois Wheat Association’s annual Winter Wheat Forum will be held Feb. 16, 2016, at Krieger’s Holiday Inn Convention Center in Mt. Vernon. The forum, which aims to help Illinois wheat producers increase productivity and profitability, again features a wide variety of attractions for producers and processors alike.
   Attendees at this year’s forum can participate in sessions covering several topics, including managing cash flows and monitoring working capital with low commodity prices, economics and agronomics of wheat production, fungicide application, an Illinois legislative update, and weather and markets, as well as a session on what millers want when they take in the wheat harvest. In addition to browsing a wide variety of exhibitors, participants also may attend the Illinois Wheat Association annual meeting, held at the conclusion of the forum.
   Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m., with educational sessions beginning at 9:00 a.m. The forum will conclude at 3:15 p.m., and will include lunch for registered attendees. Illinois Wheat Association members may register for the conference on site for $15 per person; the general public may attend for $30 per person.
