“Just as our mission is to create and expand opportunities for corn growers, a large part of what we do is aimed at helping them be better farmers in the field,” says Tim Dolan, chairman of NCGA’s grower services action team and a farmer from Winthrop, MN. “The Online Learning Center is one way to provide up-to-date information on issues and programs about which our growers need to be aware.”
At present, the Online Learning Center includes modules regarding insect and weed-resistance management, as well as NCGA’s “Know Before You Grow” program, which helps growers select hybrids with the full knowledge of whether they are approved for EU export. It also includes links to educational materials related to the Average Crop Revenue Election Program. Other modules are presently in development.
