Corn farmers invited to Kansas Corn's August listening tour

Kansas Corn invites corn growers to attend one of its 2019 listening tour stops scheduled at nine locations across the state in August. For the fourth year, Kansas Corn is conducting a listening tour to reach farmers and industry partners to discuss issues impacting corn and agriculture. Kansas Corn will provide a meal and refreshments while diving into several topics including trade, ethanol, corn markets, education, and local challenges and opportunities.

“Our annual listening tour provides our grower leaders and staff with insight from growers in each area of the state, and we use that input to drive our organizations through the year,” Kansas Corn CEO Greg Krissek said. “In addition to listening to growers, we give them updates on efforts of both the association and commission.”

The listening tour is sponsored by the Kansas Corn Growers Association, Kansas Corn Commission and many local sponsors. All corn growers are invited to attend and are encouraged to RSVP to help with meal counts at the kscorn.com website, by calling 785-410-5009 or by emailing events@ksgrains.com.

Mississippi River Advocates, Army Corps To Hold Listening Sessions

We are hosting six Saturday events along the Upper Mississippi River this summer. These gatherings will be different from many other public meetings. The people who come to these events will set the agenda and lead the discussions. There will not be presentations by “experts.”

Conversations will focus on reducing the risks of flooding, maintaining the navigation channel, managing river sediment, and preparing for a future long term drought. Share the impacts to you, your neighbors, and your community, and talk about how we can all work together better to address these issues.
