Syngenta celebrates diverse experiences with third season of “FarmHer on RFD-TV”

  • Syngenta to remain presenting sponsor of “FarmHer on RFD-TV”
  • Season three starts this week
  • Episodes to include Syngenta #RootedinAg Spotlights featuring the next generation of FarmHers

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, September 4, 2018– Season three of “FarmHer on RFD-TV” starts Friday, with Syngenta U.S. returning as the presenting sponsor. Syngenta has been the presenting sponsor since the inaugural season of the award-winning show.

“At Syngenta, we understand that a diverse mix of age, gender, experience and background will lead to a more successful agricultural industry,” said Wendell Calhoun, communications manager at Syngenta. “The FarmHer team does a great job demonstrating the value of this diversity, and we are proud to continue our support of the FarmHer movement.” 

For two seasons, viewers have had the opportunity to meet women from across the country and learn about each of their unique contributions to the agriculture industry. The third season will be no different. Marji Guyler-Alaniz, the show’s host and founder of the FarmHer movement, has now visited more than 50 farms, ranches and agricultural labs. Through photography, video and interviews, she has given viewers a glimpse into the lives of some of the women who make up more than 30 percent of the farming workforce. 

“We have a goal to visit all 50 states to demonstrate the great things women are doing all across the country,” Guyler-Alaniz said. “In season three, we’ll take viewers to a rice farm with a focus on sustainability, then visit with a FarmHer who raises alpacas for custom textiles. We’ll talk to a woman who supports ag policy in D.C., and visit with an agronomist in California. I can’t wait to continue our FarmHer journey with the RFD-TV audience in season three.”

The Syngenta #RootedinAg Spotlight segment will also be returning in season three, with a focus on the next generation of FarmHers. This summer, young women were asked to submit videos telling how they are #RootedinAg. The top videos will air throughout the season during the Syngenta in-show segment.

“FarmHer on RFD-TV” returns Sept. 7, with episode premieres airing Fridays at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time. For more information, please visit RFDTV.com.
