National Wheat News


Twenty states have a wheat checkoff program similar to North Dakota's and all have an assessment rate of 1 cent per bushel or greater. We partner with these states regionally and nationally to expand markets for U.S. wheat. In most cases, producer investments are matched with contributions from government or industry.

USW activities are a cooperative effort between wheat growers and the federal government. Federal programs, including the Foreign Market Development program and the Market Access Program, account for about 72% of USW revenues.
