Colorado Wheat

Colorado has a long and proud history of wheat production. The art of growing this “prairie gold” has been passed down from generation to generation, and more than two million acres of wheat are currently planted in Colorado each year.

As we move forward in our efforts to help feed America and the world, our industry will continue to make strides to positively impact yields and quality. By ensuring that Colorado remains at the forefront of nationwide wheat research and development, we are not only caring for our own farms and families—we are also guaranteeing that future generations of Colorado wheat growers will continue to enjoy this way of life for years to come.
