    Kansas wheat farmers, through the penny-and-a-half per bushel Kansas wheat assessment, are funding the bulk of the 35,000 square-foot structure, which includes 15,000 square feet of advanced wheat breeding laboratories, a 10,000 square-foot greenhouse complex and 10,000 square feet of office space. The staff of the Kansas Wheat Commission and Kansas Association of Wheat Growers is headquartered at the KWIC; additional tenants will include the Kansas Wheat Alliance and the Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom. The KWIC sits on three acres adjacent to the Grain Science and Industry Complex north of Kimball Avenue in Manhattan, on land being leased from Kansas State University.

    Beginning Monday, December 3, the Kansas Wheat offices will be housed at the new Kansas Wheat Innovation Center. The address is 1990 Kimball Ave., Manhattan, KS 66502.
