Idaho Wheat Commission Approves Budget; New Building in the Works

Idaho Wheat Commission (IWC) has approved its budget for the upcoming year, but it has not yet experienced the anticipated boost from the increased assessments in 2023. Farmers are holding onto their wheat longer this year, waiting for more favorable prices. The budget, based on last year's revenue projections, is allocated into three equal parts: research, market development, and communications. The recent board meeting also included discussions about plans for constructing a new building. This new facility, designed to represent the industry's future, is considered the best investment of assessment dollars.
