GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, August 28, 2019 – “FarmHer on RFD-TV” returns on Sept. 6 with Syngenta as the presenting sponsor for a fourth consecutive season. Syngenta has supported FarmHer through its sponsorship since the first season of the acclaimed show.

Syngenta is proud to continue our support of the show.”

During its run, the show has explored the stories of women all over the U.S. agricultural community. Marji Guyler-Alaniz, the show’s host and the movement’s founder, has given viewers a look at the vital impact of women on farms, on ranches and in agricultural labs across the country.

“I always look forward to the opportunity to showcase these inspiring ag stories,” said Guyler-Alaniz. “In season four, we’ll shine a light on the women in ag, including a mother-daughter duo leading a sustainable family farm in Michigan, and Katharine Girone, the winner of the 2018 #RootedinAg Contest.”
