Meetings coming up soon

The action teams and committees will have their first set of meetings in St. Louis in December. Kansas Corn Growers Association Director of Communications Sue Schulte said Timmons, McNinch and McCauley each offer strong leadership on the national level.

"Corn growers who give their time to the NCGA action teams have a commitment to grassroots leadership," Schulte said. "We are lucky to have these three Kansas growers to once again lead on the national level. Any corn grower in Kansas can have this opportunity and we would be happy to talk to them about becoming involved on the state and national levels."

NCGA members can apply to serve on an action team, with a fiscal year beginning in October for each term. Action teams provide growers an opportunity to play an active role in shaping the future of the corn industry and to become a part of the national agricultural leadership community. Committees range from production and stewardship, research and business development, public policy, grower services, ethanol committee, trade policy, biotechnology and the national political action committee.

"Corn growers will face many challenges and opportunities in the year ahead and it's great to have smart, dedicated farmer-leaders in this organization to carry out its mission," said NCGA President Martin Barbre, Illinois. "We have many terrific volunteers and are excited to be working with this team of leaders."

    Special for Active (!) Team ! Good day Dear colleagues! To you send letter a scientist with an offer to listen, to consider and possibly implement new fundamental knowledge-based solutions in the areas and areas declared in the title of your conference title. I am, Oleg V Anokhin, Dr. of Chemistry of Materials, Colloid Chemistry of Polymer Materials. My message to you is intended to try to find ways to present my research and applied for real industrial possibilities OR to achieve your international conferences to be held in the next year 2014. More than forty years (my CV) I work and perfect in their knowledge and experience of intelligent high-tech solutions in the fields - physical chemistry, colloid chemistry , colloid chemistry of polymers ( natural ) , organic chemistry , inorganic chemistry, quantitative and qualitative analysis , chemistry and fiber-forming polymers still some scientific fields . Today's most precise, effective and efficient achievement of the world of science are achieved at the "border " of several sciences. Every 5 % increase in the main properties - is a world record in sports. I offer solutions carry a fundamentally new opportunities for existing technologies. Areas of application of the proposed innovation - processing of agricultural education, more advanced processing of natural plant products , creating a new source of raw materials for the vital ingredients of human activity . A wide range of fiber crops, makes it possible to say with certainty that the proposed innovation will be of interest in many fields and for a wide range of cultivated and wild plants. My high-end solutions offered by me personally and are the initial , basic for a series of new technologies. If You have Industrial Partner for realise new TECHNOLOGIES or implement a number of conferences in a row in the next year 2014 . I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the scope of the proposed solutions are - new types of foods and active components to it , the medical composition and active additives to activate their natural properties , ... a network of completely new types of raw materials (eg - new types of functional fibers) . Offers a wide range of new sources of raw materials , and it is interesting to note that many of them are now not generally used and discarded (for example , the green rind of the walnut shell , trimming vines , etc.) The purpose of my letter frank - is to try to find a way for me to realize the opportunity to present this series of my decisions.
