Investing in Innovation
By investing checkoff dollars in cutting-edge research programs, Texas Corn Producers Board is funding the future of corn farming. The checkoff board is supporting research that increases yields while conserving natural resources, focusing our efforts on research related to sustainable agriculture. In addition, the board is prioritizing research related to financial impacts of policy implementation and seeing what most affects the farmers’ bottom line.
Each fall, the TCPB research committee reviews proposals from researchers across the state to determine the direction of funding for the fiscal year. If you would like to receive future information on the board’s research RFPs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
