Iowa Corn to Host Crop Fairs Across the State

JOHNSTON, Iowa – November 23, 2021 – The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) will be offering a series of crop fairs hosted at local venues across Iowa which will provide corn farmers valuable insights and information to operate their businesses through today’s volatile farm economy.
