Continuing our ongoing partnership in support of Northwest grain growers, André-Denis Wright, Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, joined members of the Washington Grain Commission in Spokane this month for their fall board meeting and lunch.

In his first meeting with the full board since joining CAHNRS June 1, Wright updated the Commission on ongoing research into advances in wheat and barley happening across the state through Washington State University. Small grains discoveries at WSU are made in partnership with the Washington Grain Commission, which funds research and develops markets to support the industry through assessments on every bushel of wheat and barley sold.
