If the referendum passes, the funds will be used to finance a program of research, education, market development, marketing, advertising, and other methods designed to promote the increased production, consumption, use, and sale of Tennessee corn products. 

The referendum is authorized by Agriculture Commissioner Jai Templeton at the request of the Tennessee Corn Growers Association, the state’s largest corn organization.

Tennessee corn producers or landowners who share in the production costs or the proceeds of the sale of corn are eligible to vote. 

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture will announce the referendum results December 7th. If passed, assessments will begin March 1st, 2019. Producers who do not want to participate may request a refund of the assessed amount within 90 days of the sale.
