On behalf of the Wheat Growers Association, we are pleased to be hosting a panel discussion in conjunction with a luncheon to coincide with Agri-Trade on November 8th.

We have compiled an impressive group of industry advocates from both sides of the Canadian-US border. We anticipate discussion on a wide range of topics including USMCA and grain movement across the border, varietal registration, classes/grading, how breeding investment is encouraged, and why farmers on both sides of the border should work together.
