Ahead of the 2020 Presidential election, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is looking forward to serving as a resource for agriculture policy. Rural America is an extremely important electorate with the ability to swing key states, including NCGA affiliate states, and NCGA’s membership provides a unique perspective into the priorities of rural America.
To help corn farmers evaluate how their policy priorities align with the two Presidential campaigns, NCGA has prepared fact sheets for both the Trump and Biden campaigns. These materials are based off of policy plans and statements from each campaign website.
NCGA is focused on helping farmers recover from the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic and, in the long-term, increasing demand for U.S. corn. The two documents released today outline NCGA’s ethanol, trade, sustainability, farm bill, regulatory, and infrastructure policy priorities against those of each campaign.
As the election day draws closer, NCGA will work with its membership to raise awareness of corn grower priorities for the Presidential candidates. Corn growers can check their voter registration status, register to vote, and find more information about voting in their state at Vote.org.
U.S. Corn farmers are committed to continuous improvement in the production of corn, a versatile crop providing abundant high-quality food, feed, renewable energy, biobased products, and ecosystem services.
Corn ethanol is critical for a sustainable, clean energy future.
