Policy


NWGA works to represent Nebraska‚Äôs wheat farmers on issues of state policy affecting the wheat industry and agriculture. We would be happy to visit with producers on any issue concerns they may have. Producers with concerns regarding state issues are encouraged to contact NWGA at newheatgrowers@gmail.com. This year’s main state policy issue of focus for NWGA is state property taxes.

On the national level, NWGA works with the National Association of Wheat Growers to lobby Congress on issues ranging from the Farm Bill to free trade agreements and the Environmental Protection Agency. Producers with national policy concerns can contact NWGA at newheatgrowers@gmail.com. More information on NAWG can be found on their website (www.wheatworld.org). Our main federal policy issues include the Farm Bill, trade agreements and tariff issues, and environmental regulations.
