KNOW THE APPROVAL STATUS OF BIOTECH CORN HYBRIDS
NCGA firmly supports compliance with the regulations on biotechnology in place in major U.S. corn export markets. In order to ensure U.S. farmers support our international customers and help maintain important trade relationships, NCGA urges growers to steward U.S.-grown biotech hybrids yet to be approved in major export markets away from export channels. To do so, growers should read the grower agreements prior to planting and communicate with their grain buyers.
NCGA supports growers in their efforts to act as good stewards of biotechnology. Through collaboration with seed technology suppliers, NCGA publicizes regular updates on the commercial status of biotech events and offers this frequently updated guide to biotech approval status of specific varieties in major markets.

Interested farmers can also check with elevators to see if they accept grain after verifying the contents of the product.
