Maize Organizations

American Corn Growers Association
The American Corn Growers Association is America's leading progressive commodity association, representing the interests of thousands of corn producers in 28 states. Since it's inception in 1987, the ACGA has worked tirelessly to protect farm income and rural communities.

American Seed Trade Association
ASTA's mission is to be an effective voice of action in all matters concerning the development, marketing and free movement of seed, associated products and services throughout the world. ASTA promotes the development of better seed to produce better crops for a better quality of life. Founded in 1883, the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) is one of the oldest trade organizations in the United States.

International Center for Maize and Wheat Improvement (CIMMYT)
CIMMYT conducts research on two crops.maize and wheat.that provide about 25% of all food calories consumed in poor countries. The goal of our research is not to increase the world.s pile of maize and wheat. Our goal is to improve the lives of the world.s ending their hunger, raising their incomes, preserving their land and other natural resources, and helping their children to a better life. CIMMYT and its research partners provide agricultural solutions to the problems of poor people in developing countries.

International Institute of Tropical Agriculture
IITA.s mission is to enhance the food security, income, and well-being of resource-poor people primarily in the humid and subhumid zones of sub-Saharan Africa by conducting research and related activities to increase agricultural production, improve food systems, and sustainably manage natural resources, in partnership with national and international stakeholders.

National Corn Growers Association
NCGA is a federation of state organizations, corn boards, councils and commissions developing and implementing programs and policies on a state and national level to help protect and advance the corn producer.s interests.

Maize Services and Stocks

Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center
The Maize Genetics Cooperation - Stock Center is part of the National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) and is supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (USDA/ARS). We specialize in maize genetic stocks.

GEM: Germplasm Enhancement of Maize
The Germplasm Enhancement of Maize project is a cooperative effort of the United States Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service, land-grant universities, and industry. Our objective: widen the germplasm base of commercial hybrid corn in the United States through the introduction and incorporation of novel and useful germplasm gathered from around the globe.

USDA/ARS Maize Germplasm Collection
Contains characteristic/evaluation data on corn (Zea) accessions as proposed by the Maize Crop Germplasm Committee (CGC).
