Overview

The IWC supports a wide variety of programs aimed at providing information to growers, state and federal legislators, and the general public. The IWC receives information from the Idaho Grain Producers Association, the National Association of Grain Growers, U.S. Wheat Associates, and other organizations, regarding farm programs, trade issues, transportation, and environmental concerns. Information is communicated back to the producers through the Idaho Grain magazine, cereal schools, webinars, newsletters and workshops. The IWC is committed to educating the public through programs like Bread in the Bag, Ag in the Classroom, and the Wheat Foods Council.
