Apr. 3:  The National Corn Growers Association invites anyone interested in the 2012 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference to visit the refreshed website for the biennial event to find more information on the poster session, session topics and many other areas of interest.  Redesigned for easier navigation, offers the quickest, simplest way to keep abreast of developments as the conference approaches.


With a theme of “Back to the Grind,” CUTC will feature the cutting-edge technologies and new uses that continually improve and dynamically change the corn industry. By visiting the website today, potential attendees can explore this theme and make reservations at a discounted rate.


“The updated website makes learning about CUTC and registering even easier,” said NCGA Research and Business Development Action Team Chair DeVonna Zeug.  “With new sessions on mycotoxin, exciting advances in technology and all of the newly added information, CUTC presents a broad range of topics to explore, so register today! It is simple, fast and, until Friday, offered at significant savings.”


This year, the conference debuts a third tier of presentation options offering participants the opportunity to hear the latest on mycotoxin research. This new offering has been added to complement the work of the Aflatoxin Mitigation Center of Excellence, which continues to emphasis the importance of developing methods to mitigate and control mycotoxin development in all phases of production and processing.  


The conference will also feature sessions on wet and dry milling processes, biocatalysts, gene transformation technology, health and nutrition, unique specialty corns, new products and revenue streams and many other current topics.


Increasingly recognized as an important industry networking event, CUTC offers attendees the chance to meet hundreds of valuable business contacts, identify potential new customers and learn how new technologies will enhance the value of corn. CUTC poster presentations will again provide an ideal showcase for the latest research and present students with a challenging competition.


Notably, NCGA has also extended the early registration period for CUTC 2012 by one week, but it will close on Friday, April 6.  CUTC will be held at the Westin Indianapolis Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Visit for additional information and to register today!
