Our Producers Determine Our Priorities!
Board meeting cancelled until further notice.
In 1965, the Oklahoma Wheat Resources Act established the Oklahoma Wheat Commission, and with it a framework for Oklahoma wheat producers to invest in the promotion of their product, Hard Red Winter wheat.
The Oklahoma Wheat Commission is entirely producer-controlled. Oklahoma wheat producers elect their fellow producers to serve as commissioners in district elections. Each district has an opportunity to elect a commissioner every 5 years. Five Oklahoma wheat producers make up the board of commissioners.
The Oklahoma Wheat Commission promotes greater utilization of wheat in domestic and international markets through research, market development and public education.
To be in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order and to protect our staff, the Oklahoma Wheat Commission (OWC) office will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 25, 2020. While the office will be officially closed to the public, the OWC staff are accessible and will remain working. If you have any questions or need assistance please leave a message at 1-405-608-4350. We will be checking our phone messaging system regularly and will respond back promptly.

"Humans have been growing and eating wheat for thousands of years, and the assertion that wheat's nutritional value has been changed is patently untrue. Eliminating wheat foods means eliminating an important source of healthful nutrients that are vital to our bodies functioning properly, like fiber, iron, B vitamins, antioxidants, and folic acid, which is especially important to women of childbearing age."
