This committee represents the interests of commercial hedgers in interacting with the grain exchanges, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Congress in urging the adoption of policies that create an environment where cash and futures markets can remain efficient, sound and viable for agricultural users. It also addresses issues concerning new risk-management products and the expanded role of USDA’s federal crop insurance programs. In these capacities, the committee serves as a liaison with the commodity exchanges and futures markets on issues important to NGFA members and commercial hedgers. It also develops educational materials, as needed, for industry use.
