Minnesota Corn Growers Association

"We are dedicated to identifying and promoting opportunities for corn growers while enhancing quality of life."

With nearly 7,000 members, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) is one of the largest grassroots farm organizations in the United States. Working in close partnership with the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council, MCGA identifies and promotes opportunities for Minnesota’s 24,000 corn farmers while building connections with the non-farming public. We accomplish this by investing in third-party research that focuses on water quality and soil health, targeted consumer outreach, developing new uses for corn and working to add value to every bushel of corn grown in Minnesota.

The shared mission of MCGA and MCR&PC is to identify and promote opportunities for corn farmers, while enhancing quality of life. Although these two organizations are separate and distinct entities, they share the common goal of expanding the use, marketing, and efficient, environmentally sound production of corn while helping others understand the value and importance of corn production to our nation’s economy.
