Building the Future of Kansas Corn


The Kansas Corn Commission is made up of farmers elected from each of the nine crop reporting districts in the state. The commission determines how checkoff funds will be invested in the areas of market development, education, promotion and research. The Kansas Corn Commission continually looks to the future focusing on:

  • Strengthening and expanding our foreign and domestic markets for “corn in all forms”. This includes building markets for corn, red meat, ethanol, DDGS and other corn products
  • Building infrastructure and demand for higher blends of ethanol fuels
  • Investing in youth and young growers through programs focusing on K-12 STEM education; college programs to encourage students to consider careers in corn, and our young grower program that builds a network and provides tools to help young farmers succeed
  • Sharing positive information about corn farming and agriculture with consumers who are becoming increasingly misinformed and wary of our food system
  • Supporting research to ensure our growers have access to the most innovative technology and production practices to grow profitable and sustainable corn crops
