The National Corn Growers Association has formed a task force to assess coronavirus impacts which will provide recommendations on recovery efforts and facilitate coordination along the value chain.
The task force will compile information, coordinate with the industry, and provide recommendations to mitigate the economic fallout.
NCGA’s Board of Directors has also commissioned an economic analysis of implications for corn farmers to evaluate how best to move forward.
NCGA’s Public Policy team is making sure the USDA and lawmakers in Congress know what farmers experiencing on the ground.
“We’re in unchartered territory here, the economic impacts across all industries are likely to be massive,” said NCGA President Kevin Ross, “and we encourage you to be patient as we come together to get through this challenging time.”
