National Corn Growers Annual Summer Corn Congress session was held this week in Washington DC. Representing KyCorn as delegates were Richard Strode, KyCorn President, and Mark Roberts, KyCorn Vice President. Delegates elected five new NCGA Corn Board members and discussed policies such as trade, ethanol and atrazine.

While in D.C., KyCorn also made hill visits. "It is extremely important for corn farmers from around the country to come together to discuss issues impacting their industry and work together to find solutions and ways to improve," said Laura Knoth, KyCorn Executive Director. "It is equally important for our farmer leaders to make personal visits to capitol hill to share policy positions and discuss issues that affect the agriculture industry."
