MANHATTAN, KAS. — The International Grains Program at Kansas State University is offering a series of monthly seminars designed to update global buyers of U.S. grains and oilseeds on the state of the U.S. market and harvest. The first seminar, set for June 22, will focus on the U.S. hard winter wheat harvest.

“We’re doing these seminars as a way to keep in touch with our I.G.P. alumni to promote preference for U.S. grain and oilseeds,” said Mark Fowler, associate director for the I.G.P.

Each webinar will include two or three, 15-minute presentations. The presentations will be followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session with I.G.P. faculty. The presentations will cover issues such as crop development, harvest progress, transportation issues and other market influences.

There is no fee to participate in the webinar series, which will be broadcast live and then archived on the I.G.P. web site. For more information or to register, visit
