The National Wheat Foundation is now taking applications for the 2013 Wheat Industry Leaders of Tomorrow (WILOT) program, scheduled for Nov. 16 to 21. WILOT is an annual program designed for wheat farmers who want to become involved in association and commission leadership. Workshops at the 2013 event will focus on the structure and priorities of the wheat industry as well as leadership, media and lobbying training. WILOT is sponsored by Monsanto and held in St. Louis, giving farmer-participants the opportunity to visit Monsanto labs and talk with their scientists working on wheat. Growers interested in the program should review the application process at All applications are due to Jinger Eberspacher, jeberspacher (at), in the NAWG office by Sept. 23.
