He will also initially manage the Stickney, Kimball and Chamberlain agronomy sales teams. “Mike will use his strengths in sales to enhance relationships and develop additional agronomy business for Wheat Growers in the trade area,” Steve Briggs, Wheat Growers Senior Vice President of Agronomy and Corporate Marketing, said. “We’re looking forward to the positive impact Mike will have for Wheat Growers.” “One of the core values that the cooperative lives by is to provide superior service to our customers,” Fillaus said. “I’m looking forward USDA Weekly Crop Progress Report: Corn, 56% Silking; Soybeans, 60% Blooming, 19% Setting Pods; Winter Wheat, 75% Harvested; Spring Wheat, 84% Headed Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:37:07 EDT http://www.grainnet.com/articles/USDA_Weekly_Crop_Progress_Report__Corn__56__Silking__Soybeans__60__Blooming__19__Setting_Pods__Winter_Wheat__75__Harvested__Spring_Wheat__84__Headed_-142485.html http://www.grainnet.com/articles/USDA_Weekly_Crop_Progress_Report__Corn__56__Silking__Soybeans__60__Blooming__19__Setting_Pods__Winter_Wheat__75__Harvested__Spring_Wheat__84__Headed_-142485.html K-State Researchers Contribute to Wheat Genome Map Work Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:22:36 EDT http://www.grainnet.com/articles/K_State_Researchers_Contribute_to_Wheat_Genome_Map_Work-142484.html http://www.grainnet.com/articles/K_State_Researchers_Contribute_to_Wheat_Genome_Map_Work-142484.html Manhattan—Several Kansas State University researchers were essential in helping scientists assemble a draft of a genetic blueprint of bread wheat, also known as common wheat. The food plant is grown on more than 531 million acres around the world and produces nearly 700 million tons of food each year. The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium, which also includes faculty at Kansas State University, recently published a chromosome-based draft sequence of wheat's genetic code, which is called a genome.
