U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden will be stepping down from her position in February. 

The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) has worked with Harden since before she worked with the USDA and NCGA President Chip Bowling said the association will miss her work ethic.

“On a personal note, I appreciate Deputy Secretary Harden for her no-nonsense, common-sense leadership," Bowling said. "At a time when too many people in Washington seem to be shouting at one another, she knows how to build bridges and put everyone at ease. Talking to Krysta feels like sitting down with a lifelong friend. She is a farm girl at heart, and USDA was a better place because of it."

Bowling said sitting down with Harden is like sitting down with a lifelong friend, and that he hopes NCGA will get the opportunity to work with her again.
