string FileName = "";
                string Pools = "";
                if (chkboxWheat.Checked)
                    Pools = "Wheat ";
                if (chkboxDurum.Checked)
                    Pools += "Durum ";
                if (chkboxBarley.Checked)
                    Pools += "Barley ";
                if (chkboxDesBarley.Checked)
                    Pools += "Des Barley ";
                FileName = dr["PRICE_LIST_HDR_ID"] + " " + dr["LOAD_TYPE_NAME"] + Pools + " " + System.DateTime.Now + " " + ".xls";

I am not sure if there is a better way to concate the Pools.
Also for System.DateTime I need July 2 for example.

And to get the date format you want:
System.DateTime.Now.ToString("MMMM d");

       System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
        string FileName = "";
        if (chkboxWheat.Checked)
            sb.Append("Wheat ");
        if (chkboxDurum.Checked)
            sb.Append("Durum ");
        if (chkboxBarley.Checked)
            sb.Append("Barley ");
        if (chkboxDesBarley.Checked)
            sb.Append("Des Barley ");
        FileName = string.Concat(dr["PRICE_LIST_HDR_ID"], " ", dr["LOAD_TYPE_NAME"],
                    sb.ToString(), " ", System.DateTime.Now.ToString("MMMM d");" ", ".xls");
