The Michigan Wheat Program board has partnered on two important perks for wheat farmers.
Free help for farmers identify problems with their wheat.
First, in the spring of 2013 the board announced an innovative partnership with the MSU Diagnostic Services to help farmers identify problems with their wheat at no charge. Read more about it and download required forms at the Wheat Diagnostics tab.
Modest financial support to farmers who achieve verification through MAEAP.
The second program, also begun in 2012, provides modest financial support to farmers who achieve verification through the Michigan Ag Environmental Assurance Program. While the MAEAP process is free, it can be time-consuming. As a result, the board agreed to offer a one-time $50 award for documented wheat farmers (one award per farmer, not per farm) for those obtaining their first verification after June 1, 2013.
