Market Maximizer Grain Program Enrollment Deadline March 1

Enroll Corn and Soybeans for the March-September Marketing Period

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 20, 2007 -- The enrollment deadline for Northstar Commodity's Market Maximizer program is March 1. Growers enroll bushels of corn and soybeans for the marketing period from March 1 to Sept. 15.

Market Maximizer is the newest marketing tool from Northstar Commodity. The program combines the commodity price risk management of the Northstar Commodity team, led by chief analyst Mark Schultz, with the basis experts at US Commodities, Northstar's sister company.

"Ethanol demand competing with livestock demand will bring more basis volatility and opportunity for corn producers," said Curtis Knobbe, grain group director for Northstar Commodity. "Increased corn acres, resulting from higher prices, will also create more basis risk."

The program gives growers an opportunity to capitalize on market volatility and maximize basis opportunities, and then deliver to the destinations of their choice. To enroll, call Northstar Commodity at 1-800-649-7545.
