Corn Check-Off Rate To Increase

KSCB News - June 8, 2015 3:19 pm

The Kansas corn check off rate will increase to 1 cent per bushel beginning July 1.

The Kansas Corn Commission says that’s the first check off increase in 25 years.

Corn Commission Chairman Kent Moore says the increase will allow the commission to pursue more domestic and foreign markets for corn and corn products such as ethanol and red meat. Revenue from the check off will also be used to build demand for ethanol-blended fuels; ensuring the use of innovative technology and improving efforts to market corn to consumers.

The increase will bring Kansas in line with most corn states that have check off rates higher than the half-cent-per-bushel rate.
