2020 SWQL Annual Research Review/SWQC/C&G Cincinnati Section meeting 
March 16-17, 2020
Shisler Conference Center
Wooster, Ohio.

The focus of this year’s meeting will be ‘increasing the profitability of eastern soft wheat’, which will be addressed throughout the meeting. The SWQL research presentations will report the research progresses on the extended uses, maturity and pre-harvest sprouting of eastern soft wheat. We have four invited speakers, who are the experts in the respective areas and will talk about CRISPR Gene Editing, Eastern Soft Wheat Breeding, Early Wheat Harvest & Double Cropping, and Challenges in Eastern Soft Wheat Production. We will have an open discussion to share the concerns on the decreased wheat acreage, and what are being practiced and researched and what could be done more to increase the profitability of eastern soft wheat.
