The Wheat Marketing Center (WMC) 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.

We are heading into Week Four of crop quality testing; for details on samples tested to date, see our weekly reports here. WMC continues to manage testing for the National Wheat Yield Contest. As of the end of Week Three, 59 NWYC samples have been received from across the country. WMC also welcomes a visit by the South Asian Contracting for Wheat Value team on Monday, as well as multiple Japanese mills checking on harvest results later in the week.
Partner of the Month: August 2019
Testing for our annual crop quality evaluation program has begun. We recognize the three PNW wheat commissions (Idaho, Oregon & Washington) for their support and the many elevators and locations throughout the region that help collect the samples.
