PRIME Program



The NeCGA PRIME Program is designed for younger or newer producers who want to increase their knowledge and improve themselves and their operations in every aspect. All sessions are focused on maximizing the long-term viability of the operation through the latest research, emerging technologies, farm management practices, and peer relationship. The experience provides relevant, current and bottom-line information that is the best the industry has to offer.

The PRIME Program consists of three 2-day sessions plus attendance at the annual meeting of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA). You can expect a time commitment of 6 to 8 days away from the farm over a 12-month period. Session locations are determined once class participants have been selected. A maximum of 12 corn farmers are selected to participate each year.

Questions and applications should be sent to the Director of Grower Services, Katherine Byrne, at
