Nebraska Wheat

Wheat is an important crop in Nebraska, with farmers producing 60-80 million bushels each year. This grain has sustained family farms in the state for generations, and filled consumer needs across the globe with a consistently high-quality product. It has also helped to define Nebraska as a flourishing agricultural mainstay in the United States and around the world.

That’s why the Nebraska Wheat Board and the Nebraska Wheat Growers Association will continue working to ensure that the way of life for wheat producers can continue into the future.
