Education is a strong component of the NAWG Foundation’s efforts.
The Foundation will sponsor its first Learning Center sessions at the 2010 Commodity Classic, the annual convention of the corn, soybean, wheat, and sorghum associations.
Supporting work with educational coalitions like The Hand That Feed U.S. and the Field to Market is another priority for Foundation dollars.
Looking forward, the Foundation will seek to provide educational publications on the wheat industry in general. One such publication, produced annually, might include basic information about the wheat industry – how much wheat is grown and where, where wheat goes, the economic benefit – for use by NAWG state associations and other parts of the wheat chain.
