What we do.
Kentucky Corn strives to create a future for Kentucky corn farmers where they can operate successfully, grow demand and foster an understanding of corn farmers and the industry.
Kentucky Corn Growers Association
The Kentucky Corn Growers Association is a grassroots organization representing the interests of more than 6,000 corn farmers throughout Kentucky. We are committed to increasing the profitability of corn production through sound policies, continued market development and strong involvement in the political process.
Kentucky Corn Promotion Council
The Kentucky Corn Promotion Council collects and administers a .0025 checkoff, which is remitted on corn sold throughout Kentucky. This special fund makes much-needed market development, promotion, education, and research possible, all of which benefit the Kentucky corn industry, agriculture, and economy.
