Former NCGA President to Lead MAIZALL

John Linder, a former president of the National Corn Growers Association, was elected to serve as the president of MAIZALL. The Ohio corn grower will lead the international farm organization that focuses on eliminating regulatory obstacles to innovation in agriculture.

The group contains members from the U.S., Brazil, and Argentina. His one-year term starts on July 3, and NCGA’s current leadership expressed enthusiasm over the news. “John is a dedicated leader, and he will no doubt do an outstanding job leading MAIZALL,” says current NCGA President Tom Haag. MAIZALL engages private sector stakeholders, national government officials, and leaders from international organizations like the World Trade Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization. The goal is to work towards alignment on regulatory barriers to trade.

“Trade is vital to American farmers,” Linder says. “As MAIZALL president, I will encourage foreign governments and international organizations to embrace science-based regulatory decision-making.”
