For those who like wheat, the Illinois Wheat Forum will take place on August 9th in Okawville. Illinois wheat producers, agricultural businesses, consultants, and processors are all invited to attend the forum at the Okawville Community Center. There will be presentations about drones for crop spraying, yield winners panel, wheat market, and a climate outlook.
Mike Doherty, IWA interim executive director, says that this forum provides the opportunity to discuss and hear solutions to a range of production and market issues. Industry exhibits will feature seed companies, millers, elevators, crop protection services, drone services, and other ag-service industries.
Keynote speakers at the event will include Representative Charles Meier and Illinois Farm Bureau Director of State Legislation Kevin Semlow. Registration begins at 8 AM on August 9th with a breakfast and drone demonstration. Event sessions will go from 9 AM until 2 PM and include lunch.
