Oregon Wheat Commission

The Oregon Wheat Commission is a producer funded and governed check-off program. Our mission is to improve the profitability of Oregon Wheat Growers through Marketing, Research and Grower Education programs. The OWC is composed of five producer commissioners, one public member and two handlers from the various growing regions of the state. Our responsibility is to allocate assessment funds to specific programs designed to find solutions to immediate and long term issues faced by the wheat producers of Oregon.

The Commission was originally formed to deal with the abundance of wheat grown. With around 90% of Oregon wheat now being exported the majority of our marketing efforts are focused on overseas markets. The OWC currently cooperates with U.S. Wheat Associates and Wheat Marketing Center to provide technical assistance to customers and develop markets.

The majority of the Commission’s research funding goes to researchers at Oregon State University and USDA-ARS Western Wheat Quality Laboratory focusing on variety development, genomics, quality, fertility and weed management.

The Commission also funds, in part, the efforts of the Oregon Wheat Growers League as the industry’s grass roots representative conducting grower education and lobbying efforts. The Oregon Wheat Commission and the Oregon Wheat Growers League collaborate to serve the ever changing needs of the industry.
