Recent events have again drawn attention to challenges created when new genetic traits for corn, that are not approved in all major export markets, are released by seed companies.  A large percentage of the corn handled by Elkhart Grain Co. is shipped to markets that do not accept corn grown from seed that is not approved for major export markets.  They have informed us that they will be randomly testing for the traits.  We strongly recommend our customers verify that their seed varieties are approved for major export markets.
 
Should you choose to grow corn from seed that has US approval but does not have approval for all major export markets, we will be able to accept post harvest delivery at designated locations.  Be sure to notify us before delivery so we can direct you to an approved location.
