Corn Farmers’ Educational Campaign Returns to Washington featuring a Kentucky Farm Family

The nation’s top crop and the farm families who grow returned to the U.S. capital this summer for the sixth year in a row as part of the Corn Farmers Coalition educational program. Coalition advertisements debuted across Washington July 7 with a message of innovation, efficiency and productivity.

Quint and Leah Pottinger of New Haven, Ky. are one of six farm families from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Kentucky who will be featured in digital, print, and Metro Station advertisements through September. The goal of the campaign is to communicate a foundation of facts seen as essential to decision making, rather than directly influencing legislation and regulation.

“As urban and suburban America gets further removed from the agricultural roots that made our nation strong, it becomes ever more important to reach out and maintain this connection,” said Quint Pottinger, a farmer from New Haven, Kentucky. “Farming is something that we love. The dirt doesn't just stain our hands; it runs deep in our blood. We want to share our affinity for farming with our friends, neighbors, and community.”

More Is Not Better: Nitrogen, Corn and Dry Weather
UK Grain Crops: The 2014 season has been dry in many places in Kentucky – corn in these areas not growing as well, or looking as good as desired. Many fields are showing less than optimal color and there have been several calls regarding possible need for more N to ‘green things up a bit’. Without evidence of substantial loss of fertilizer N applied earlier, additional N is not a good idea. Extra N (N above and beyond the recommendation) can do more harm than good – especially if the season stays dry. Read more
