Bringing the world of ag science to your field
Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC) invests corn checkoff dollars in production research to identify best management practices that ensure Indiana corn farmers are the most productive they can be with less cost to the environment and their business. In addition to working directly with farmers, ICMC, along with Indiana Soybean Alliance collectively invest over $500,000 per year in university research projects with Purdue University, University of Notre Dame and Indiana University to identify solutions to environmental stressors such as weeds, pests, drought and soil-borne diseases.
What's the benefit? The goal is to develop methods and tools that enhance yield and composition and new ways to control pests and manage diseases, all while producing corn in a sustainable, environmentally acceptable manner.
