The MGA is independently run "by growers for growers". The farmer led council commissions research on maize and wholecrop agronomy, utilisation and environmental issues. The results of this work alongside knowledge picked up elsewhere are quickly transferred to members via regular mailings, demonstration sites, conferences and study tours. MGA members also have "free" telephone access to agronomists and other advisors.
Our mission statement identifies the associations aim is:
"To be the foremost provider of information in the field of maize and wholecrop production and utilisation with the ultimate objective of increasing the profits of farmer members of the MGA"
