Members of the National Corn Growers Association were on Capitol Hill this week talking about issues important to them, especially the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
More than 300 corn farmers joined members of Congress and ethanol industry leaders at a rally Wednesday calling attention to the proposed cutting of the RFS` for corn ethanol. In addition, corn growers were talking to legislators about the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule and a uniform national food labeling law expected to be taken to the House floor next week.
NCGA chairman Martin Barbre of Carmi, Illinois comments on the rally, the Corn Congress, and the corn crop in this interview. Interview with Martin Barbre, NCGA
