Last week, the National Corn Growers Association was recognized for excellence at the Region 2 National Agri-Marketing Association Awards Ceremony. The poster accompanying the association’s 2017 World of Corn publication took first place for the region in the Company- or Producer-Funded PR Campaign Element Directed Toward Consumers category. Additionally, the Missouri Corn Growers Association took a merit prize for its Missouri-specific outreach efforts on atrazine re-registration themed “Fight the EPA.” The South Dakota Corn Growers Association took first place in Region 3 in the category for Direct Mail - Directed at Farmers, Growers and Ranchers.
The World of Corn, a publication NCGA puts out annually, features a statistical guide that shows in a clear, graphic manner the facts about U.S. corn production and use. This publication, which is generously sponsored by Monsanto, includes unique additional components every year. In 2017, the publication, which is sent to members through The Progressive Farmer, included the award-winning poster insert that detailed the ways in which NCGA works to drive competitive market demand and increase sustainable production.
World of Corn is debuted every year at Commodity Classic. To view the website, which includes shareable graphics, click here.
