NCGA is focused on building market demand for America’s corn farmers in the near-term and long-term. There are several short-term incremental opportunities we are exploring that will translate into long-term wins.
The reality is corn farmers continue to produce more on less land. Since 2000, corn production is up 4.7 billion bushels, average yields have grown by nearly 40 bushels/acre, and corn yields have increased by 29 percent.
Despite the many uses of corn, on an annual basis, we consistently have plenty of corn left every year for food products, animal feed, fuel, and other uses.
