NCGA is taking a series of actions to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic fallout it is creating for corn farmers and our customers.

Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
