Illinois Corn works with several important partners to accomplish our international/export goals.
US Grains Council – Not only does the Illinois Corn Marketing Board provide funding to the US Grains Council, we also participate in learning opportunities with them, such as our recent mission to Panama.
National Corn Growers Association - The Illinois Corn Marketing Board also funds NCGA to lobby Congress in support of our export goals including the passage of Free Trade Agreements and better infrastructure to transport goods out of the country.
