Idaho Wheat Commission Budget

Idaho has a thriving wheat industry, thanks to wheat industry leaders before us.  A top priority is to maintain and protect what has been built over the last 60 years and pass it off to those who will follow us in as good a condition.

Idaho’s wheat tax is generally lower than neighboring states, but every effort is made to spend grower funds as efficiently as possible.  Wheat grower dollars are used to help develop and maintain export markets, to help maintain low-cost barging in the Columbia/Snake River System, to develop varieties resistant to the ever-changing diseases and pests, to pay for laboratory and technical analysis of each year’s crop, to provide grower education and seminars, and to fund IGPA and NAWG as they represent wheat grower interests at state and national levels.
