Podcast: Corn Farmers Coalition works hard to educate policymakers

In this podcast, Mark Lambert of the National Corn Growers Association, provides a report and update on the Corn Farmers Coalition.

The Corn Farmers Coalition is an alliance of the National Corn Growers Association and 14 state corn associations that represent tens of thousands of farmers. Both the Nebraska Corn Growers Association and Nebraska Corn Board have been members of this coalition since it was founded in 2008 and play important roles in making it work.

"The Coalition works hard to do is educate policymakers in Washington about how tech-savvy, innovative farmers in Nebraska and across the country are able to produce more corn while using fewer resources and protecting the environment," Lambert said.

He noted that the Coalition is in the planning stages for the next campaign. "What America’s corn farmers accomplish every year should be celebrated and shared and the Corn Farmers Coalition aims to do just that," he said.
