The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announced today that Sean Arians has joined the organization as vice president of Sustainable Production.  


Arians brings to the role 20 years of experience working in the agriculture industry in a variety of production- and sustainability-focused roles.  


“Sean has deep agricultural roots and has earned the reputation of being a strategic thinker and innovative problem solver,” said NCGA CEO Neil Caskey. “We’re thrilled to welcome him to the NCGA team to lead and elevate our efforts to support the long trajectory of sustainability gains made by U.S. corn farmers.”


Prior to joining NCGA, Arians worked for some of the biggest brands in agriculture, including roles at Advanced Agrilytics, Bayer, The Climate Corporation and Precision Planting. His past experience spans on-the-ground work with farmers to implement sustainable solutions for their farms to roles in strategy to drive big-picture solutions across companies.


“I’m excited to get to work on behalf of the nation’s corn farmers,” said Arians. “We have a great opportunity to tell the story of the hard work farmers have done to date and keep building on that progress in the years to come.”


An Illinois native, Arians is the fourth generation of his family to manage and operate a row crop farm in northwest Illinois, where he frequently trials new practices and solutions, including the use of cover crops. He holds a degree in agriculture business management from Illinois State University.
