Colorado Corn Promotion Council (CCPC) represents the grain corn farmers of this fertile and a-maizing state! Did you know, more than 3000 corn producers are tirelessly focused on increasing crop yield while reducing environmental impact? This is a dynamic that brings out the very best in Colorado’s future-focused farmers.
Over thirty years ago, farmers established a one-penny-per-bushel assessment to be collected by the first handlers of sales of corn in our state. Since then, the Colorado Corn Council board of directors and staff have invested producer dollars in research, market development, issues & engagement, education, and outreach to enhance the viability of the grain corn industry.
Through this organization, farmers are able to share their love for the land and their way of life with Colorado’s kids and adults – many of whom have never set foot upon a farm – about the wonders of the sustaining and versatile crop that is grain corn.
As stewards of land, water, and other natural resources, farmers take environmental responsibilities very seriously. Equally important is their role in growing the feed, fuel, and fiber found in over 4,000 products.
