About Us

The North Dakota Grain Growers Association has been the premier voice for the state’s wheat and barley producers for nearly 50 years.

Originally named the North Dakota Wheat Producers, the North Dakota Grain Growers Association was founded in 1967 by a collection of farmers and agricultural leaders from across the state. In 1977, the National Association of Wheat Growers granted the NDGGA a membership charter, which gave the organization a national platform from which to influence and develop policy on behalf of its members.

To this day the NDGGA remains committed to serving its members with education, leadership, information and representation to increase profitability and value-added opportunities.

In recent years the NDGGA has sponsored an annual environmental tour (E-tour) to highlight the state’s agricultural practices and environmental stewardship. The organization has also sent representatives on trade missions to Cuba to explore new markets for North Dakota grain. These examples showcase the NDGGA’s proactive efforts to benefit the state’s wheat and barley industries and ensure continued profitability for the next generation of North Dakota farmers.
