To celebrate the critical role women are playing in agriculture, Syngenta is sponsoring a new television series on RFD-TV. Scheduled to start airing this fall, “FarmHer” will feature some of the industry’s amazing women and the impact they make every day to help feed more than 7 billion people.

“Syngenta recognizes how valuable women are in agriculture all across America,” says Dan Burdett, head of customer marketing at Syngenta. “From driving tractors on the farm to discovering innovations in the lab, women continue to make major contributions to our industry.”

Each episode of “FarmHer” will tell stories of real women who, as the “FarmHer” theme states, “love the land, care for the community and feed the people.”

“Syngenta recognizes how valuable women are in agriculture all across America.”

“I founded ‘FarmHer’ in 2013 to begin changing the image of agriculture—to include women in that image through photographs and stories,” says founder Marji Guyler-Alaniz, who is also a professional photographer. “This partnership with RFD-TV and Syngenta takes what I started with ‘FarmHer’ and launches it to the next level.”

The “FarmHer” TV series will use still photography, video and insights from the featured women themselves to showcase their invaluable contributions to agriculture, as well as to their families and communities.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Syngenta to help bring the compelling stories of women in agriculture to homes all across the country,” says Raquel Gottsch, executive producer of “FarmHer.” “RFD-TV is pleased to work with a company that has a genuine interest in the work and passion of all Americans who work in this industry—no matter their gender.”
