Ely Walker presents information about dual-purpose canola at the 2017 Annual WOCS Meeting in Pullman.

 

Faculty and students from the WOCS team, UI faculty and staff, canola producers, crop consultants, and agency personnel came together in late February for the annual WOCS meeting. The day included presentations with the most recent research findings and Extension activities and invited presentations from Dr. Jim Moyer and Dr. Rich Koenig, followed by stakeholder input from invited attendees. Lots of ideas were generated that will be implemented this year and next to guide research and Extension efforts. Below are presentations from the meeting.
