Key Programs and Services
The Wheat Marketing Center is one of the technical crossroads of the international wheat industry, providing technical training and grower workshops, innovative research, product development, and crop quality testing services. WMC focuses on promoting U.S. wheat by demonstrating its quality and functionality in Asian noodles, crackers and biscuits, tortillas and flatbread, and other baked products. Pilot scale production lines (pictured above), state-of-the-art quality testing equipment, and rich technical expertise provide great value to our state wheat commission partners, wheat industry stakeholders, and millers and food manufacturers around the world.

Crop Quality 2018
The Crop Quality reports for 2018 are posted on our Weekly Harvest Report page.
This Week at WMC
This week we are hosting 32 Texas Extension agents for a tour plus the USW Southeast Asia Contracting for Wheat Value team and some additional Japanese millers. Crop quality samples are flowing in, as are National Wheat Yield Contest samples, so both FGIS and our lab staff are very busy.
Check out our Facebook page for a video from last week’s press conference about PNW wheat going to Yemen.
Partner of the Month
With the focus on our annual crop quality evaluation project, we recognize the three PNW wheat commissions for their support and the many elevators and locations throughout the region that help collect the samples. Producers are harvesting wheat in all three states and WMC’s weekly reports have begun.
