Elect Kelly Harsh to the National Corn Board


Kelly Harsh grows corn, wheat and soybeans in Delaware County, Ohio with her husband, Glenn.

She was appointed to serve in a vacated seat on the National Corn Growers Association’s Corn Board in 2021 and jumped right into her service as board liaison to the Risk Management Action Team and the Finance Committee.

For the state association, over the past five years Kelly served two years on the Risk Management Action Team and one year on the Ethanol Action Team.

In addition to her roles in industry organizations and on the farm, Kelly is a certified public accountant, formerly working with various clients in agriculture and beyond. Additionally, she runs a crop insurance business.

“As farmers represent a smaller and smaller percentage of the population, boards such as NCGA serve a vital function.
NCGA gives farmers a forum to have thoughtful discussion about the issues that impact agriculture. We have the chance to shape the policies that will allow us to continue providing an abundant source of feed, fiber and fuel in a rapidly changing world.”

Platform Priorities

Kelly’s first priority is for NCGA to well represent the federation of states. The association is a strong voice in federal policy as it relates to corn farmers across the country.

She would also like to see the association:

  • Grow membership
  • Increase demand for corn
  • Continue to document, prioritize and publicize sustainability improvements in corn production
