All Farm Progress Show attendees who support ethanol are invited to a pro-Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) rally on Wednesday, August 29, 2018, at 11:15 am at the Sukup Grain Bin. This event, which is being coordinated by the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) and Iowa Corn Growers Association, will help the Show welcome U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and remind him how important the RFS and E15 are to the rural economy – and to the farmers who depend upon this key market.
The Sukup Grain Bin, Booth 1024, is quite large and will not be difficult to locate. So, please, take a moment and join NCGA President, Kevin Skunes to show rural America’s support for the fuel that fuels our families.
NCGA is taking a series of actions to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic fallout it is creating for corn farmers and our customers.

Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
