About Ohio Corn Checkoff

The Ohio Corn Checkoff was approved by an affirmative vote of Ohio’s corn producers. The voluntary, self-help program allows for the collection of a three-quarters-cent-per-bushel assessment by all first purchasers of the grain. Funds from the program can only be invested for research, market development and promotion, and education purposes. 

Mission
Advancing Ohio's grains, the Ohio Corn Checkoff works to develop long-term opportunities for corn farmers.
