North Dakota State University Extension Service conducted an educational effort entitled: “Spring Wheat Protein Spread Project”. Spring wheat grown in the northern plains in sold based on protein percentage. Producers must make marketing decisions based on current protein premium or discounts and expectations of the future. Seasonal protein spread data was needed to make informed decisions. The objective was to gather protein data from grain elevators, analyze the data and disseminate the results to producers. Several presentations were made to producers. Spring wheat producers with more information have a potential to be better marketers and thus improve the bottom line.
The presentation to the Extension Risk Management Education National Conference includes a description of the situation, an overview of the project, an overview of presentation materials and an evaluation of the program. Educators could use this information and adapt it for their own locality.
