Market Development

Northern Crops Institute (NCI)

Northern Crops Institute (NCI) is another important component of the South Dakota Wheat Commission’s effort to develop markets. It is a regional institute serving South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana and North Dakota. Northern Crops Institute provides educational and technical programs in support of promotion and market development of crops in this region. Promoting a bulk commodity such as U.S. wheat is a long-term effort and requires continuous presence in the market, persistence and establishing close contact with the trade.

While U.S. grain markets provide more variety and flexibility than our competitors, the U.S. grain marketing system can seem complex and puzzling to those unfamiliar with it. NCI is a sophisticated technical support organization that assists existing and potential buyers to gain a better understanding of the marketing, grading, quality, utilization, and processing of northern-grown crops.
