If you’re looking for an opportunity to learn a lot of information about an opportunity crop a lot of people are talking about, consider attending one or more of the 2018 WSU-Washington Oilseed Cropping Systems workshops the week of January 22. Canola and other oilseeds present an excellent rotation crop in irrigated and dryland regions of Washington and the PNW, and the market price remains competitive with wheat in most situations. Each of the 3 one-day workshops we are offering will cover a wide range of production and marketing info and feature PNW canola producers, ag industry reps, and university faculty as presenters. Registration is available for only $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Stay tuned to the WSU Oilseeds facebook page and website for updates, and read more in this Timely Topic on the WSU Small Grains website!
