The Corn Growers Association of North Carolina will be conducting a referendum for the assessment of corn sold to first purchasers in North Carolina on March 14, 2023. All farmers currently engaged in the production of #2 yellow dent corn intended for livestock feed, including tenants, sharecroppers or other persons sharing in the production income of corn are eligible to vote. Voting will take place at the Currituck County Extension office, located at 120 Community Way in Barco during regular business hours.
The current assessment is 1.25 cents per bushel, and the Association is proposing to change the assessment to .30% of settlement. This will bring the Association’s assessment in line with other row crop assessments across North Carolina. If the Association realizes an increase in funds they will be applied to an endowed chair position at NC State University for the Extension Cropping Specialist-Corn position. This endowment will ensure the position will be filled with the highest qualified candidates in perpetuity. Additionally, any increase in revenue will cover the increased cost of conducting research which benefits all North Carolina corn producers. The votes will be collected and tabulated by NC State University and the results published by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services.
The Corn Growers Association of North Carolina is governed by an all-volunteer board of farmers and industry representatives. The Association is committed to promoting production agriculture, funding research that benefits corn growers across the state, and representing all the state’s farmers nationally and internationally.
For questions on the referendum, or if you need accommodations for persons with disabilities please contact Adam Formella at (252) 232-2261 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 10 business days before the voting.
