Pacific Northwest Marketing Tour

The Idaho Wheat Commission has conducted a Pacific Northwest Wheat Marketing Tour for nearly 20 years to educate Idaho wheat farmers about where their wheat goes after leaving the farm.

Each year the IWC sponsors 10 wheat growers (selected by their commissioner), in Portland, Oregon. The three-day event allows Idaho wheat growers to learn about the U.S.inspection services, grain shipments, analytical testing, product development and domestic and international uses for their wheat.

The tour is an excellent forum for leaders in Idaho’s wheat industry to gain a greater understanding of Pacific Northwest wheat marketing.
