“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with, and on behalf of, the corn producers of Tennessee,” Reed said. “With the passage of the Tennessee corn check-off, the state’s corn growers placed their confidence in the TCPC to implement programs that will develop and enhance a sustainable environment for Tennessee corn growers. I am grateful for the oppor-tunity to be on the ground floor of this important initiative.”
