Seeking value for your success

As a farmer-owned cooperative, our first priority is to help our farmer owners’ succeed. We do so by strategically linking your business to markets in and beyond our local area. We also continually evaluate products, technologies and alternative markets to improve the value we bring to your operation.

Recently, CHS made a strategic decision to adopt a state-of-the-art technology at our Rochelle ethanol facility that will improve the plant’s processing efficiency and ethanol yield, while providing increased opportunities for you. This technology is Enogen® corn.

Enogen is a Syngenta seed brand that produces a specific enzyme for ethanol production and is now available here at CHS Elburn for planting in 2019. The ethanol plant at Rochelle is currently contracting approximately 27,000 acres of Enogen corn for the 2019 planting season as they operationalize the new technology in the fall of 2019.

This creates an exciting business opportunity that pays you in three different ways. First, you’ll be eligible to receive patronage on the Enogen hybrids you purchase here. Second, you’ll be eligible for patronage on the Enogen corn you market through our co-op. And third, you’ll receive a premium of 40 cents per bushel over and above the cash corn price for every bushel of Enogen corn you deliver.

It’s truly a win-win-win for farmers, cooperatives and our community. Enogen corn products come with high-yielding genetics and industry-leading traits. This allows you to capitalize on a specialty market premium without sacrificing yield and agronomics.

We understand that you will have additional questions about Enogen, including hybrid performance and yield, handling and delivery requirements, and we will be happy to answer them. Stop by CHS Elburn and let’s talk.

Thank you for considering the Enogen corn program. We hope to hear from you soon!
