Thresher’s 200 Bushel Club started in 2011 with the idea that wheat is the centerpiece of our business. Wheat acres are being taken over by competing crops throughout the U.S. — barley, hay, sugar beets and corn all compete for acreage. One way to make sure wheat remains competitive for growers is to conduct research on ways to promote efficiency and yield improvement through economically sustainable practices. The 200 Bushel Club was formed with area experts from different facets of farming to explore areas including disease, wheat breeding, fertility, agronomy and grain equipment.
