Marketing grains directly and/or locally can be a way for growers to capture considerably more value from grain crops. Join WSU Extension for this Cascadia Grains regional field day to learn more about winter grain varieties for these markets, and WSU and OSU’s efforts to support local grain economies in the western PNW. Large plots of four select wheats and barleys from WSU’s Bread Lab and OSU’s Barley Project, and two European varieties of hybrid rye will be on display. Representatives from local grain markets will introduce growers to local market opportunities and the quality of grain they’re seeking.
PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
  • Viewing of six hard red winter wheats, winter malting and hulless food barleys, and hybrid ryes
  • Discussions about WSU and OSU’s grain variety development efforts for local markets
  • Discussion about local baking, brewing, and distilling grain markets and systems
  • Opportunity for networking
  • Catered lunch
