National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and state leaders will hold a news conference Wednesday morning in St. Louis to urge the Trump administration and members of Congress to finish the job on outstanding trade and ethanol issues important to corn farmers.

The past year has presented a perfect storm of challenges for America’s corn farmers. While there have been positive developments, such as the trade agreement with Japan and the long-awaited approval of year-round E15, there are still outstanding issues that, if adequately addressed, would provide some much-needed certainty to corn farmers. Corn leadership from across the country will call on the President to follow through on his commitment to farmers and the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), conclude China trade negotiations with a positive outcome for agriculture and for Congressional leaders to reach an agreement with the Administration and pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Who: Kevin Ross, NCGA president, Dan Nerud, Nebraska Corn Growers Association president, Brandon Hunnicutt, Nebraska Corn Board vice chair and other state corn leaders

What: News Conference

When: Wednesday, December 11, 7:30 a.m. CST

The event will also be livestreamed on Facebook.
