“We have to significantly enhance our expectations of where new opportunities come. We need to expand and exploit U.S. corn and begin capitalizing on those opportunities in which we can begin to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace,” said Dorr.

“In my 30 years of involvement with the Iowa Corn Growers and National Corn Growers, I can honestly say they have effectively been very strong leaders in this whole area of policy as it revolves around market development.” The Council shares a long history of partnership with Iowa Corn as it helped to establish its checkoff in 1977.

ICPB has been a member of the Council since 1979 and ICGA since 2002. Dorr discussed with the Boards the many challenges and opportunities that exist in 2010 for U.S. corn as worldwide production continues to increase
