Eight Selected for NCGAs Research Ambassador Program (Thu, 29 Sep 2022)
The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is pleased to announce that eight Research Ambassadors have been selected for 2022-2023 academic year: Julian Cooper, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities Brendan Hanson, Purdue University Kirsten Hein, Colorado State University John Searl, University of Wisconsin-Madison Aimee Schulz, Cornell University Seth Tolley, Purdue University Rachel Veenstra, Kansas State University Brandon Webster, Michigan State University Just in its second year, the program is continuing to build great momentum. Developed and funded by NCGA’s Sustainable Ag Research Action Team, the objective is to build a network of future leaders in the agricultural sector; ambassadors must demonstrate academic excellence, leadership potential, and be involved in research relevant to corn production. “The first year of the Research Ambassador Program was even more successful than we imagined it would be,” said NCGA Sustainable Ag Research Action Team Chair and Nebraska grower Jason Lewis. “And I have no doubt that the same will be true with the next round of ambassadors. We will continue to build a stronger bridge between the research lab and the farm field; and our growers are equally enthusiastic for these dynamic opportunities to engage with the graduate students.” Through the program, each NCGA Research Ambassador will receive the following: Financial award of $2,500 directly to the student. Up to $750 for registration and travel reimbursement for participation in scientific research conferences. Fully-funded travel to participate in NCGA events throughout the year, which could include grower research committee meetings, congressional visits at the state or federal level, Commodity Classic, Corn Congress, farm field days, etc. To learn more, visit NCGA Research Ambassador Program.

USDA Expands PACE Coverage (Wed, 28 Sep 2022)
The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) applauded the U.S. Department of Agriculture today for expanding the Post-Application Coverage Endorsement insurance option for corn farmers who “split-apply” nitrogen. The expansion will include most counties in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin where non-irrigated corn is insurable. “PACE provides an additional risk management tool for corn growers who split-apply nitrogen,” said Iowa farmer and NCGA President Chris Edgington. “We believe in this crop insurance product and are glad that the Risk Management Agency is expanding access to PACE for the next crop year.” PACE provides coverage for the projected yield lost when producers are unable to apply the post-nitrogen application due to field conditions created by weather. It is available as supplemental coverage for Yield Protection, Revenue Protection, and Revenue Protection with Harvest Price Exclusion policies. PACE was developed by the Illinois Corn Growers Association, National Corn Growers Association, Ag-Analytics Technology Company, LLC, Meridian Institute and others.
