Corn research proposals accepted

LANSING, MI -- The Corn Marketing Program of Michigan (CMPM) is accepting grant proposals for corn research for 2019. Proposals are due Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 at 5 p.m. 
In the interest of moving the entire industry ahead, CMPM has worked with the Michigan Corn Growers Association (MCGA) to define the needs of the Michigan corn industry. By working together and leveraging the talents of both boards, both organizations are better able to serve the interests of Michigan’s corn growers.
Proposals will be reviewed by the CMPM board of directors, which is made up of corn producers from across the state. The projects selected for funding will be announced in February 2019.  
Projects are sought that meet one or more of the following priorities: 
• Enhancing the value of Michigan’s corn industry through new and expanded corn markets and value-added uses. 
• Supporting research that looks at corn production systems that are sustainable, protective of the environment and economically feasible. 
• Supporting research that improves the financial future for farm families and businesses. 
The 2019 Request for Proposals can be accessed online at
