But that’s just the beginning. NCGA is working to establish three new uses for corn and we can’t do it alone.   The upcoming 2020 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference will focus on new uses for corn, technologies that improve corn yield, corn quality and more.   New markets for biobased products and chemicals represent the next generation for market demand for corn and NCGA is working to accelerate the revolution.

Preparing these corn association and checkoff leaders to deliver the high level of service necessary for corn associations to achieve their goals and for the corn sector to lead American agriculture is vital for our association.   In 2019, Syngenta redesigned LAIB to be a cross-commodity leadership program bringing together a diverse group of 50 farmers across all the commodity programs they support. The program is designed to provide state corn grower leaders with advanced leadership training and the necessary communication skills to make a difference in American agriculture while advancing into leadership positions on a national level.   Read More
