Lynn Clarkson serves as president of Clarkson Grain and managing director of Clarkson Soy Products. Founded in 1974 in Cerro Gordo, Illinois, Clarkson Grain contracts with farmers across Illinois, several other states and a few foreign countries to produce selected grains and oilseeds verified to meet client requirements.

The company selects hybrids, varieties and production protocols to optimize farm income, processor yield and market access. It also supplies crops throughout the year to clients in North and South America, Asia and the EU willing to pay premiums to get identity-preserved supplies with preferred characteristics.

Clarkson Grain also offers products that are cleaned, sized, raw or processed, and traceable back to the supplying farm for organic, non-GMO and conventional markets.
