This course was held December 1-14, 2019, at Kansas State University's IGP Institute, where four fellows were in attendance. The program included classroom discussions, wheat milling and grading labs, wheat research facility and elevator visits, and a field trip to an export facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Some of the topics discussed throughout the two-week program included US wheat classifications, US grain production supply chain and marketing system, wheat and flour quality analysis, futures and options, purchasing strategies, and storage and quality management of wheat. The Brazil fellows were able to meet and learn from Kansas wheat growers and researchers, Kansas Wheat Commission staff, US Wheat Associates staff, Kansas State University grain and milling experts, as well as many other industry professionals.
