The Indiana corn checkoff, administered by Indiana Corn Marketing Council, was first established in 2001. In July 2007, following a vote by the Indiana General Assembly, a new corn checkoff program went into effect to manage funds collected at the first point of sale. Updates to the corn checkoff law were made by the Indiana General Assembly in 2012.
In compliance with Indiana law, a checkoff assessment of ½-cent ($0.005) shall be collected on each bushel of corn marketed in the state of Indiana.
The checkoff requirements do not apply to popcorn, seed corn or sweet corn. There is a right to refund within the law for those who choose not to support the corn checkoff program. To refund, a farmer must fill out the refund form and return to Indiana Corn Marketing Council.
