The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA), first established in 1979, works in the interest of corn producers by engaging in education, research, market development and promotional activities that create improved farm sustainability and profitability. CCGA also represents its members in legislative efforts that benefit corn producers and rural America.
The CCGA is funded in part by member dues and corporate sponsorships, and may engage in other revenue generating activities. The CCGA may receive Local, State or Federal project grants from governmental entities.
