Farmers are known to be some of the most pioneering, innovative and driven individuals in the world. This National Ag Day, the Nebraska Corn Board is celebrating those who work day in and day out to feed, clothe and fuel the world.

Agriculture plays a vital role in our state. With over 90% of Nebraska dedicated to agriculture, the Nebraska Corn Board is proud to have national rankings. From white corn to irrigated acres to livestock and ethanol production, Nebraska ranks at the top. In 2023, Nebraska farmers produced over 1.7 billion bushels of corn, ranking third in the nation, a testament to their time, efforts and determination in the midst of adversity in weather and climate. 

“At the Nebraska Corn Board, we understand the vitality of farmers and ranchers and know the impacts they make for the world each day,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, executive director of the Nebraska Corn Board. “Programs funded and partnered on by the Nebraska Corn Board ensure the future is in good hands whether that be research to help farmers expand their knowledge for innovation, finding new markets globally or promoting the industry.”

National Ag Day is celebrated on Tuesday, March 19 celebrating all aspects of the agriculture industry. Whether it be an agronomist, engineer, salesman, scientist, economist or anyone in-between, the Nebraska Corn Board is appreciative of their efforts today to be ready for tomorrow’s future.
