Focus on the Future

In today’s fast-paced world where change is the norm, corn growers must come together and focus on the future of the industry. The Kansas Corn Growers Association (KCGA) provides full-time industry representation on issues, representing growers on issues like ethanol, farm programs, crop insurance, water quantity/quality and trade policy. We fight regulatory overreach and work to protect grower access to biotechnology and crop protection tools like atrazine.

Benefits of KCGA Membership

Market Access

The bin-busting harvests of 2017 and 2016 emphasize the importance of market access for corn and corn products. The KCGA works for corn growers by actively pursuing legislative and regulatory issues in Topeka and Washington DC to protect and increase domestic and foreign market access for corn and corn products, like meat, ethanol and DDGS.

Legislative and Regulatory Advocacy for Farmers

The KCGA brings farmers together to connect with legislators, agencies, state and national leadership to effect change. The association also fights against regulatory overreach that infringes on your right to farm.

KCGA is proactively working with National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) to represent growers  on the next farm bill, working to keep a strong crop insurance program, a strong safety net and funding for the vital export development programs MAP and FMD.

KCGA is a leader in representing growers in EPA’s continuing registration review of  atrazine. In 2016, we led the fight against EPA’s draft ecological risk assessment that would essentially eliminate the use of atrazine. The review continues and we are awaiting more draft risk assessments from EPA. No matter how long it takes, KCGA will be there with the Triazine Network to represent growers insisting that EPA to use credible science in the atrazine registration review.

Opportunities to Engage

The KCGA has created new programs that help farmers become more involved in the association. As a member, you decide how you want to be involved and our team will work to get you engaged in Kansas Corn.

  • KCGA hosts grower meetings in districts across the state. Watch for announcements of our 2018 meetings.
  • Learn how to apply for the Kansas Corn Corps young farmer program. The program is designed to help provide young farmers with business development assistance and create a network of fellow young farmers.
