Letter to first purchasers from Kansas Wheat Commission

The following letter is from the Kansas Wheat Commission to first purchasers in Kansas regarding a wheat check-off increase:


Dear Kansas First Purchaser,

Fifty-six years ago, the Kansas Wheat Commission was created to conduct a campaign of wheat promotion and market development through research, education and information. The many successes attributed to Commission activities through this producer investment would not have been possible without the support of those who collect and submit the assessment. Thank you for your support in collecting the Kansas Wheat assessment.

For the past 5 years, producers have been investing 15 mills (1.5 cents per bushel) to support research and market development activities of the Commission. At a meeting this August, the Kansas Wheat Commission board voted to raise the assessment from 1.5 to 2 cents per bushel which is the maximum allowed by current statute. This change will be implemented on November 1, 2013. This will put the Kansas wheat check-off at a rate equal to or less than most other wheat check-offs in the U.S.

Why are we increasing the check-off?

Continued Innovation in Wheat Research

With the opening of the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center in December 2012, a huge step was taken towards the advancement of wheat research in Kansas. The 35,000 square-foot, $10.3 million facility will result in new, improved wheat varieties being released at an increased frequency. Decreased wheat acres and smaller crops in combination with decreased state and federal research funding make it more vital than ever that farmer invest more in their own industry. The increased assessment will allow the Commission to pay down debt on the building and focus on funding research in the Innovation Center.

Ever-Changing International Markets

Kansas continues to export 50% of wheat produced every year to international markets at a value of $1.5 billion. The Commission continues to work through U.S. Wheat Associates to identify new and emerging international markets and assessing the needs of those customers. Case in point, the U.S. will export over two million tons of wheat to Brazil this year. Every Kansas farmer dollar contributed to international marketing efforts through U.S. wheat is matched by nearly three dollars of federal support.

Fighting Fads on the Home Front

The gluten-free food market has seen a 28% increase in growth the past five years. Books like the “Wheat Belly” feed into this consumer diet fad. Only a very small percentage of the population has celiac disease (gluten intolerance) or are allergic to wheat gluten. Through support of the Wheat Foods Council, Kansas wheat farmers can make sure that truth and science combat myths and fads regarding gluten.

Thank you for your continued support of the wheat industry and the Kansas Wheat Commission. If you or your customers have any questions about the assessment increase, please do not hesitate to call 1-866-75Wheat.


Respectfully,

Ron Suppes, Chairman
Justin Gilpin, CEO
