June 20: National Corn Growers Association President Garry Niemeyer released the following statement in response to the Senate passing Chambliss amendment #2438:

 

“The National Corn Growers Association is very disappointed to see passage of Senator Saxby Chambliss’ conservation compliance for crop insurance amendment in the 2012 farm bill.  Our members have spent a significant amount of time discussing this issue and feel this addition to the farm bill would have a negative impact toward America’s farmers.  NCGA’s official policy states we oppose the coupling of conservation compliance to eligibility for federal crop insurance.”
