Corn Growers Launch Call-to-Action on Rising Input Costs

May 6, 2022

In response to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s public comment period on Access to Fertilizer: Competition and Supply Chain Concerns, the National Corn Growers Association has launched a call-to-action to aid corn growers in raising a collective voice on this important and timely matter.

“We need a unified message if we’re going to effectively reach Washington decision-makers on this important issue,” said NCGA Vice President of Public Policy Brooke S. Appleton. “That’s why it’s critical that corn growers take this opportunity to submit comments to USDA, including detailed information about how rising input costs are impacting their operation.”

he call-to-action encourages corn growers to comment specifically on accessibility, price volatility and market competition.

You can submit comments directly to USDA here. The public comment period closes on Monday, May 16.
