Ohio Corn & Wheat Leadership Academy applications now being accepted

Ohio men and women with a commitment to the future of Ohio agriculture and an interest in developing their leadership potential are invited to apply for Class 4 of the Ohio Corn & Wheat Leadership Academy. This continuing education program is sponsored by Ohio Corn &Wheat and Seed Consultants, Inc.

“As there becomes fewer farmers, it will continue to become more important to have stronger voices and more farmers engaged,” said Tadd Nicholson, executive director of Ohio Corn & Wheat. “We hope this academy will empower grain farmers to new levels of leadership; whether that’s serving on an agricultural board or engaging in a causal conversation with a consumer who has an agricultural question.”

The Ohio Corn & Wheat Leadership Academy is a two-session statewide leadership development program created to educate and encourage Ohio grain producers to become more involved with Ohio Corn & Wheat and our grassroots programs. These programs will feature development of leadership, business and communication skills, which will result in a professional competitive edge for our organizations and the farmers who participate.

Ohio grain producers from all over the state are encouraged to apply. To participate, candidates must be Ohio residents and must commit to attend both sessions, August 24-26, 2016, and January 24-26, 2017.

OCW Leadership Academy application forms and details are available at ohiocornandwheat.org or by email at egilliland@ohiocornandwheat.org. The deadline for applying is May 27.

  1. We are grain farmers in n/w Ohio – Eastern Lucas County. Our wheat has been affected by a warm winter and a very wet March and April. The cold temps and snow on April 8 and 9 changed the color and chemistry of the plant. What would your council recommend for chemical treatment and application ?
