Established in 1978, the Kansas State University International Grains Program is designed to educate foreign business leaders and government officials about U.S. grains and oilseeds through technical training and assistance programs in grain storage and handling, milling, marketing and processing. IGP supports its marketing activities through support from national farmer commodity organizations. Our partnership with the Foreign Agricultural Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture forms the front line for the American farmers' international grain marketing efforts.
IGP achieves its mission through technical training in three curriculum areas: feed manufacturing and grain management, grain marketing and risk management, and flour milling and grain processing. These programs are targeted at international flour and feed millers, international grain buyers, overseas governmental officials and other public and private-sector parties involved in grain procurement and/or use.
