The Corn Utilization and Technology Conference (CUTC) answers the question of how can we produce more quality corn, build new markets and continue to create opportunities for agriculture. While the ag industry can often be the target of unfavorable attention, CUTC brings an optimistic and forward-thinking focus on corn production quality and new technologies to build greater corn demand.  Productivity, adaption and resilience are key pillars at the forefront of 2022’s CUTC agenda.


 An impressive list of industry experts will cover topics including sustainable aviation fuel, DDGS opportunities, fractionation, biotechnology, technology transfer, commercialization, mycotoxin management, wet-milling technologies, dry-milling markets and innovation.


This year’s keynote will be presented by Dr. Todd Werpy, senior vice president and chief science officer for Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM). In that role, Dr. Werpy leads the development of ADM’s scientific talent and technical capabilities, with a focus on ensuring that technology delivers cost improvement and competitive advantage and that ADM delivers on its strong pipeline of improvement projects.


Since 1987, CUTC has convened the corn industry’s leading innovators. This biennial conference provides a setting that allows scientific exchange and engaging discussions for researchers, farmers and other industry leaders. Participants are presented with numerous networking opportunities: meeting with business contacts, identifying new customers, and learning how new technologies will enhance the value of their business. Students will find opportunities to build lasting networks and present their research through the Student Poster Session.  CUTC also offers the perfect venue for exhibitors to present new technologies and equipment to potential clients.


CUTC will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, at the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center from June 6 through June 8, 2022.  To learn more about the agenda, registration, sponsorship or exhibitors, visit ncga.com/cutc.
