“We all know that corn and corn products are renewable, sustainable, and often replace other goods that can be more challenging for our environment. Corn-based ethanol is cleaning burning and produces less greenhouse gasses than petroleum-based fuels. Corn-based plastics biodegrade faster and reduce petroleum use. Corn plants themselves pull carbon from the air and sink that carbon into the soil. We are trying to make sure the non-farmers in our state understand the important ways corn farmers contribute to positive global solutions,” said Mark Wilson, chairman of the IL Corn Marketing Board.


The thirty second spot will air regionally around the state on February 13 on the following stations:


  • KSDK – St. Louis
  • KWQC – Quad Cities
  • WAND – Springfield
  • WEEK – Peoria
  • WREX – Rockford


The spot will also air digitally in the Chicagoland area via connected TV and digital advertising opportunities. Watch the thirty second spot.
