The picturesque amber waves of grain that Kansas is famous for have inspired countless artists throughout the years. But the wheat plant isn't just a pretty face, it's a huge sector of the Kansas economy and the backbone of many Kansas farms.
Kansas Wheat is the result of a cooperative agreement between the Kansas Wheat Commission and the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers. The two partner organizations pride themselves in being the "leaders in adoption of profitable innovations for wheat."
The Kansas Wheat Commission is a grower-funded, grower-governed advocacy organization working to secure the future of Kansas wheat in the global market through international trade, research, export system studies and continually improved varieties of wheat. Its mission is to increase wheat producer productivity and profitability through research, education and domestic and international market development. The KWC is funded by a voluntary, two cent assessment on each bushel of wheat produced in Kansas.
The Kansas Association of Wheat Growers is a member-governed organization representing wheat growers in planning legislation, advising government and international agencies on matters affecting wheat and providing grass-roots leadership to the U.S. wheat industry.
Kansas Wheat is proud to support Kansas farmers, invest in wheat research and help consumers around the nation rediscover wheat.
