The president of the National Corn Growers Association says it was a productive 2021 growing season on his northern Iowa farm.

Chris Edgington raises corn and soybeans along with his dad, brother and son in St. Ansgar, Iowa. During last week’s Trade Talk event at the 2021 NAFB Convention in Kansas City, Edgington reflected on the 2021 growing season with the Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network.

Edgington talks about some of the field reports coming in from NCGA members across the country.

Edgington also discussed corn rootworm concerns across Iowa this year. He says it wasn’t as big of an issue in northern Iowa.

As NCGA President, Edgington also serves as president of the National Corn Growers Association Foundation, an executive committee member of NCGA’s Allied Industry Council, and as the association’s delegate to the U.S. Grains Council.
