JOHNSTON, IOWA (November 23, 2021) — The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) will be offering a series of crop fairs hosted at local venues across Iowa which will provide corn farmers valuable insights and information to operate their businesses through today’s volatile farm economy.

“Crop fairs give ICGA members access to information they might not get elsewhere,” explained Adam Bierbaum, District 7 ICGA Director who chairs the Grassroots Network, Membership and Checkoff (GNMC) Committee. “Each crop fair is customized to include topics to fit different regions of the state, with opportunities for farmer-to-farmer learning and a chance to interact with subject area experts on a variety of topics including legislative policy, conservation, market development and risk management.”
