9.1.20 Dozens of in-person wheat meetings, seminars and trade team visits have been put on hold at the Washington Grain Commission since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the U.S. last March. That means business as usual is out—and business as unusual is in. In episode 193 entitled: Special Delivery! Continuing the Nisshin Crop Quality Survey During COVID-19 Restrictions, Scott Yates, director of communications and producer relations for the WGC, continues his streak leading 13 consecutive Nisshin quality survey teams—even in the absence of Japanese participants. Yates not only picked up all the grain samples usually secured by the Japanese team, he interviewed elevator personnel virtually about this year’s crop, information Nisshin staff would ordinarily query in person.
