Cereal Schools

Sponsored in part by the Idaho Wheat Commission, there are eight cereal school events held across the State.  The University of Idaho hosts these educational workshops to provide wheat growers the opportunity to learn about insect issues, cereal disease updates, variety trials, weed control and a number of other important issues facing the wheat industry.

The Idaho Wheat Commission provides up-to-date information about the status of current wheat issues facing wheat growers and gives an update on world wheat supply and demand numbers.  Growers can earn 3 pesticide applicator recertification credits by attending a cereal school in their area.
