For the sixth time in seven months, the National Corn Growers Association set a membership record with 42,100 on the rolls at the close of July. The new record surpasses that set in June, with 41,185 active members at that month’s close.
“2014 has certainly been an incredible year for NCGA in terms of membership thus far,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre. “It is energizing to see our rolls grow as farmers take an active role in shaping their future together. With major issues surrounding the RFS, farm bill implementation and pending regulations on the horizon, we will need the strength of all of our members, the true grassroots, to continue pushing us to greater heights year after year.”
NCGA has members across the contiguous United States and works in cooperation with grower associations and state corn checkoff boards from 28 states, representing the interests of its members and the more than 300,000 growers who contribute corn checkoff funds in their states.
