Happy New Year. Creating demand for corn remains our focus as we turn the page on a new calendar year. In 2020, these specific areas of focus include:
- Increasing sales of higher ethanol blends by introducing legislation to establish a federal low carbon, high octane fuel standard for automobiles.
- Securing top export markets for U.S. corn by completing USMCA and riding that momentum to build new markets.
- Building consumer trust in corn production methods so that we can continue to be the supplier of choice to our customers.
Contact Jon Doggett to learn more about our plan of work to drive results in these three focus areas.
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. Short term, this means instituting policies to protect the health and safety of our stakeholders and the broader communities we serve. Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
CommonGround is a group of farmers connecting with consumers through conversations about science and research and personal stories about food and misinformation surrounding farming. Supported by the NCGA and state corn organizations.
The Soil Health Partnership (SHP) is a farmer-led initiative that fosters transformation in agriculture through improved soil health. Administered by NCGA the partnership has more than 220 working farms enrolled in 16 states. SHP’s mission is to utilize science and data to partner with farmers who are adopting conservation agricultural practices that improve the economic and environmental sustainability of the farm.
