Texas Wheat Producers Board

The Texas Wheat Producers Board, established in 1971, was developed to provide support and funding for wheat research, education and market development.

The board currently operates on a two cent per bushel checkoff fund. Fifteen wheat producers sit on the board, attend quarterly meetings, manage the collection and expenditure of funds, and represent Texas wheat producers at several local and national conferences, meetings and symposiums.

Each member serves a six-year term, representing one of four statewide districts:
