Research, market development, promotion and education for Kansas corn is funded by the Kansas Corn Commission (KCC) through the check-off program. The Kansas corn checkoff assessment is one-half cent per bushel, collected at the site of first purchase, and is refundable. The commodity checkoffs are collected by the Kansas Department of Agriculture and distributed to the commodity commissions who administer the checkoffs. The nine corn commissioners represent the state’s nine crop reporting districts and are elected by growers in their districts. They serve a three-year term.
