Indiana Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is a membership organization that is the voice for Indiana corn growers' concerns in local, state and national legislature, judicial and regulatory agencies’ decisions affecting agriculture. Along with its national organization – National Corn Growers Association – ICGA works to promote corn and help improve corn growers’ profitability.
If you are a producer who pays the corn checkoff, your checkoff funds cannot be used for lobbying elected officials on critical issues affecting your farming business in the Indiana General Assembly and U.S. Congress.
That's where the ICGA enters. ICGA is the corn farmer's voice on critical public policy issues. Organized at the national and state level, corn farmers who become members determine public policy positions on critical issues like the next farm bill, trade policy and ethanol legislation.

Membership in ICGA and NCGA lets you join with other corn producers to lobby for better farm policy, which, in turn, makes your farm more viable.
