A prescription for producing high-yielding and high-quality wheat is just what the doctor ordered for Kansas wheat producers—referring to expertise from Kansas State University’s Romulo Lollato, Carlos Bonini Pires, Kelsey Andersen Onofre, Dorivar Ruiz Diaz, and Dan O’Brien.

Kansas Wheat Rx is a combination of suggested management practices for economical and sustainable production of high-quality winter wheat in Kansas. Speakers will cover crop crops, soil health, role of wheat in a cropping system, soil fertility, fungicides, and economics.

The programs are part of Wheat Rx, a partnership between Kansas Wheat and K-State Research and Extension. Members of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers receive one free registration. The nonmember fee is $110.

The programs will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at two sites—March 7 at the Dodge City Depot Theater, 201 E. Wyatt Earp Blvd., and March 8 at the Wichita Double Tree at the Airport, 2098 Airport Road. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration is at https://kswheat.com/dodgecity and https://kswheat.com/wichita, respectively.
