The Oregon Wheat Commission postponed the Grower Workshop in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions preventing access to many facilities. The tour is traditionally held in February and is expected to return in February 2022.
“This educational tour is for our growers to further their knowledge of the supply chain. We want to ensure we can provide the high-quality experience our growers deserve. We are excited for the workshop to return in 2022," said OWC CEO Amanda Hoey.
The workshop features a variety of tours, including the Wheat Marketing Center, Shaver Transportation, a wheat foods manufacturing facility, and a local grain export facility. Participants are provided updates on OSU wheat research, highlights from U.S. Wheat Associates and more. The workshop provides an opportunity for growers to see
firsthand the shipping, grading, product development and customer
relations including topics like Supply & Demand, transportation
issues, Sanitary/Phyto-Sanitary issues and global conditions affecting
the price of wheat.
