Max Armstrong reports that this week is the Corn Congress where the National Corn Growers Association will be electing new farmer-leaders. Max offers a look the many candidates on tap for the event. The candidates farm corn and soybeans, but also have other crops and off-farm businesses. Max notes that this group, which will serve in leadership, will need a lot of help back home as they take on the travel and time for the national organization.
Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
