After careful consideration, the Board of Directors of the New York Corn and Soybean Growers Association, Inc. (NYCSGA) has recently made staffing changes at the executive director level. This decision was made after due consideration by the entire Board with the best interests of the organization as a whole in mind.
The Board of Directors of NYCSGA is committed to effectively administering the Soybean Checkoff in New York on behalf of and for the benefit of all New York State soybean growers while separately providing programing and benefits for its dues paying members.
As the Board of Directors we look forward to promoting New York State agriculture while helping to fund research, programs, and other efforts that increase the profitability and long term sustainability of corn and soybean farmers of this state.
Congratulations to all our Yield Contest Winners and entries!
A special congrats to Matt Kludt & John Mizro, who won the corn and soybean yield contests, respectively, for New York state. Matt & John will be getting an all expenses paid trip for 2 to Commodity Classic, and they already received their huge trophy cup!

The New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association is requesting proposals for 2015 corn research and education. Proposals must be received no later than 4 pm on February 28, 2015 at:NYCSGA
Funding decisions are expected to be made on or around March 30, 2015. Typical awards are expected to be $10,000 per project or less. NYCGSA reserves the right to negotiate award/contract funding with successful applicants.
The available funds for 2015 research and education projects will be awarded with funds from New York state. There is a limited amount of funding available, so this process will be competitive. In addition, funds will be awarded on a reimbursement basis. Grantees should be prepared for a lag time in receiving reimbursement, as the funding must first come from the state.
