MN Wheat Research & Promotion Council

Areas & Representation

The Minnesota Wheat Research and Promotion Council board is made up of nine members that are elected to direct Minnesota wheat check-off dollars for wheat promotion and research activities.

The state is divided into three areas with representation in each. Area 1, five board members; Area 2, three board members and Area 3 with one board member.

Board members must be wheat producers willing to serve as leaders and advocates for the Minnesota wheat industry and to work to improve industry profitability and viability. To be considered, a person must have shared in the profits and risk of loss from producing wheat during the current or preceding marketing year.

Directors are elected to serve three-year terms, and the board meets approximately six times throughout the year.
