An important focus of the Nebraska Corn Board involves education – but these efforts go beyond teachers and students.
Instead, initiatives like our Sustaining Innovation campaign reach out to all Nebraskans and help tell the story of farming today – explaining why farmers do what they do, how farming has changed over time and why this is a good thing.
Other efforts focus on providing some facts and perspective to counter myths and misinformation that sometimes circulate about corn production, farming and corn-based ethanol. Several items relating to ethanol can be found on our Kernels of Truth page. (More details can be found on our Ethanol page.)
Another way the Nebraska Corn Board and a growing number of farmers are reaching out is through social media. New communication tools make it easier than ever for farmers to tell their story – and for others to ask questions. From blog posts, to Facebook pages to Twitter, Nebraska farmers are there. Join in the conversation!
