Specialty grains from our Upper Midwest region of the U.S. consist of a wide range of high quality grain crops and varieties that yield premium prices for growers and processors, and provide specific desired traits for the international buying customer. They include a range of food grade and special trait feed grade grains that typically require special handling and identity preservation from the field to the end market.
Typically today, these premium specialty grains are grown by producers under contract with processor/trader handlers who have a direct buyer/seller source relationship with customers overseas and in special domestic markets.
The Upper Midwest region is well-suited to produce high quality grains. From the rich black soils of Iowa, Minnesota, southern Wisconsin and eastern Dakotas to the plains of the western Dakotas, the Midwest offers favorable growing conditions for a wide range of IP specialty crops. The region's climate and weather patterns provide strong growing conditions for different specialty crops.
