The North Dakota Wheat Commission is sponsoring a Pre-harvest Marketing Seminar in conjunction with the North Central Research Extension Fields Days in Minot on Wednesday, July 17. The seminar will start at 1 p.m., and will be held in the meeting room at the NCREC. Mike Krueger of The Money Farm will open the seminar and discuss marketing strategies for harvest and beyond, as well as mega issues impacting markets. This presentation is designed to give producers some perspective on major factors influencing markets, and what strategies might offer the most potential to achieve the best price on their 2019 crops.
The second speaker on the program will be Oleksandr Bayuk, Senior Wheat Merchandiser, CHS, Inc. Mr. Bayuk will provide a more detailed discussion on the demand outlook for hard red spring and durum wheat. He is directly involved with the export merchandising of wheat for CHS, giving him some unique perspective on what the 2019 marketing year will provide, and which countries provide the best opportunities. Wrapping up the session will be a presentation by the North Dakota Wheat Commission, focusing on industry trends and issues impacting North Dakota wheat producers.
Both events that day are free, and no registration is required. The NDSU NCREC Field Day kicks off at 8:30 that morning and includes discussion and plot tours on a number of production related topics including hybrid wheat, managing acidic soils, weed control, and pulse crops and canola research. This will be followed by lunch at noon, and then the pre-harvest marketing seminar.
For additional information on both programs, please call the NDSU NCREC office at 701-857-7677, or the ND Wheat Commission at 701-328-5111.
