About MWBC

At the Montana Wheat & Barley Committee (MWBC) we promote research locally and market development around the world.
Our goal is to help develop superior plant varieties and best farm practices for generations to come.
We cultivate markets by building trade relationships, educational outreach, and displaying Montana values.

Who We Are

The MWBC is the producer-funded and directed checkoff organization for wheat and barley growers in the state. The MWBC is attached to the  Montana Department of Agriculture  for administrative purposes.
The  Montana State Legislature  appropriates the  funds budgeted by the  seven (7) MWBC directors. The Committee, by mandate of state statute, is supported exclusively by a self-assessment which producers pay on the sale of their wheat and barley to fund foreign and domestic marketing development and research programs.
