Attendees can also expect an update on the 2024 UNL-TAPS sorghum competition, facilitated this year at the Stumpf International Wheat Research Center.

The Henry J. Stumpf International Wheat Research Center is east of Grant. From Highway 61, take Road 761 east one mile and turn south on Road 329. The building is half a mile south on the east side of the road. Transportation to field sites will be provided.
