Syngenta Donates $13,950 to Local FFA Chapters

  • Syngenta partnered with the National FFA Organization to donate $13,950 to local chapters through events at its Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action sites. 
  • The donation will help support training and programming for future agriculture leaders. 

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, December 18, 2018— As part of a season-long campaign at its Grow MoreTM Experience and Agronomy in Action sites, Syngenta will donate $13,950 to local chapters of the National FFA Organization. These funds will support ongoing training and programming for the communities’ future agriculture leaders.

​​​​​​​“Syngenta has a long and proud history of supporting the local ag community,” says Melissa Lord, Syngenta customer event and trade show lead. “Our Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action site teams give back to their communities by providing agronomic insights to help site visitors improve their operations. This year, Syngenta invested in these communities even more by partnering with the National FFA Organization to donate to local FFA chapters to benefit the next generation of ag innovators.”

At each Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action site event this year, site hosts encouraged visitors to check in and complete a follow-up email survey. In return, Syngenta donated to select local FFA chapters. 

The sites serve as educational opportunities for visitors to participate in hands-on agronomic trials and product demonstrations in their local growing conditions. Each site showcases the latest agricultural technology and is supported by a team of agronomic experts to help visitors maximize their operations.
