NCGA’s Jon Doggett on the State of Corn

With the livestock industry and fuel industry being forced to close plants and halt production, corn is taking a hit from both sides. RFD-TV’s Tammi Arender spoke with the National Corn Growers Association CEO Jon Doggett on his take on the crop’s market.

A recent survey by the NCGA shows the cash corn prices have fallen by 16 percent on average. Doggett says that it will likely take a very long time for the markets to recover.

Doggett adds, “We have a lot of work in front of us. It’s going to take a long time and a lot of pain.”

There is hope in the form of a weaker Brazilian crop and an increase in Chinese interest in U.S. ag exports.
