Donate to the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center

A dream became reality when  the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center in Manhattan, Kansas opened in December 2012.

The KWIC is a wheat research/office building constructed by the Kansas Wheat Commission on the north campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan. The Center is a 35,000 square-foot structure that includes 10,000 square feet of office space, 15,000 square feet of advanced wheat breeding laboratories and a 10,000 square-foot greenhouse complex. The complex is home to the Kansas Wheat offices and Heartland Plant Innovations, a Kansas Wheat initiative focused on developing new technologies for the crops that Kansas farmers grow.

The state-of-the-art laboratory includes an advanced breeding services lab – including a doubled haploid lab, molecular biology lab, seed lab and plant transformation lab, and several walk-in growth chambers and cold storage rooms.

The Center is in a highly visible location just north of Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan and adjacent to the K-State Grain Science and Industry north campus. Kansas farmers, wheat industry representatives and international visitors are among the many people that will frequent the Center for many years to come.
