Partnerships are a key component of the Washington Grain Commission effectively working on behalf of farmers and landlords in the areas of marketing, research and education.
These partnerships include a diverse group, including researchers, grain handling experts, export elevator companies, and global wheat consumers, along with government agencies like the Washington State Department of Agriculture. These partnerships also extend to legislative representatives, the U.S. Wheat Associates, the Wheat Marketing Center, WAWG, and various state commissions. By combining resources with these organizations, the WGC significantly leverages its funding to amplify its impact.
The WGC’s strategic partnerships with various entities enhance its influence both nationally and internationally. This collaboration plays a pivotal role in advocating for the interests of wheat farmers in Eastern Washington, a task that would be challenging to accomplish alone. The WGC supports over a dozen organizations critical to the wheat industry’s success through annual membership dues and other contributions.
