John Linder, a farmer from central Ohio, was appointed to serve as director on the board of MAIZALL, the international alliance of maize growers and exporters from Argentina, Brazil and the United States.
Linder, a past president and current chairperson of the National Corn Growers Association in the United States, is a fifth-generation farmer. Together with his wife and his brother, Linder grows corn (maize), soybeans, soft red winter wheat and soybeans for seed. In addition to traditional row crop farming, he also has experience raising livestock.
“I am humbled and honored to serve on behalf of U.S. corn farmers as a director for MAIZALL,” said Linder. “I look forward to collaborating with my family farmer counterparts in Brazil and Argentina to tell our farming story and advance the adoption of agricultural innovation to provide safe and abundant food and fuel for the world.”
As of January 1, 2022, John Linder replaced Pamela Johnson as the NCGA’s representative on the MAIZALL Board. Pam Johnson was a founding director of MAIZALL in 2013 and served as its president in 2017-18.
