About

Iowa Corn

Who We Are: We’re a group of folks who eat, sleep and breath all things corn – okay mostly just the first one, but the point is – we think corn is pretty great! Comprised of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) and Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA), Iowa Corn works to unlock the potential of corn in a sustainable manner to meet the global need for food and energy. Both organizations work on the joint mission to create opportunities for long-term Iowa corn grower profitability.
