The National Corn Growers Association joined with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and the American Seed Trade Association in late April to host officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture for demonstrations on planting practices, seed treatments, and equipment innovations that are bringing continuous improvement to sustainable farming practices.
The field day took place on the working farm of NCGA Chairman Chip Bowling in Newburg, Maryland.
“Farmers care deeply about keeping America’s land, water, and air safe for our families, our neighbors, and our communities. The National Corn Growers Association is committed to farming sustainably and protecting those resources for future generations,” said Bowling. “Technology is key to making farming even more sustainable. That’s why it’s important that the people who regulate our industry understand how we use these tools and technologies on our farms. It was a great event, and we hope to keep working with these individuals in the future.”
