The Oklahoma Wheat Commission and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture held a ceremonial wheat trade signing in Waukomis, Oklahoma on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 with US Wheat Associates and members of the Ecuador- Peru Wheat Trade Team traveling in north central Oklahoma. Oklahoma State Secretary Blayne Arthur greeted the team and then read the agreement as members of the Trade Team looked on. The agreement was estimated to have $149 million dollars of value to the Oklahoma wheat industry in purchases by the milling and baking industries of the two countries.
