This is the 2nd in a series of 3 discussion related to wheat and small grains.  We talk with Steelee Fischbacher who is the Policy Director with Texas Wheat Producers Board and Association.  She talks about the role of these organizations, the history and role of these, the wheat checkoff, and the work they are doing in policy, marketing, and research.  

Speaking of research, Dr. Jackie Rudd is one of the best and his group has been developing the famous TAM varieties that are planted throughout our area and beyond.  His gets into the history of TAM varieties, breeding decisions along the way that eventually end up as a marketable variety, changes due to producer and industry priorities that influence direction of the development of certain traits such as yield, insects, disease, viruses, drought, quality, etc.,  Great discussion.

Sorry we went a tad over an hour but it was too interesting to stop.  Enjoy the conversation.
