Strong Relationships in Ag Lead to a Brighter Future
“As an industry advocate in our nation’s capital, I experience firsthand the power relationships can have in steering key agricultural policies in the right direction.”
As a result, we spend a lot of time outside Capitol Hill, meeting face-to-face with the men and women of rural America, so that we can stay in touch with their reality. Many of us have lifelong connections to these people, because we, too, grew up on family farms that we still visit and help run. In those instances, we not only understand but also live with the impact regulations, commodity prices and trade agreements have on farm income.

New articles on the Thrive website show how strategic coalitions and local partnerships are benefiting our industry. One article looks back at the floods and fires that devastated agriculture in 2018 and the healing power on communities of neighbor helping neighbor. Another article describes how researchers, grove owners and other industry experts are banding together to battle citrus greening, a devastating disease that’s changing the landscape of Florida agriculture. Also featured in this issue are the Syngenta Grow More™ Experience sites—living laboratories located throughout the country where Syngenta agronomists work with local growers to help solve crop challenges and maximize productivity.
A common thread in all these stories is the irreplaceable role relationships play in forging goodwill and positive results. As agriculture moves forward, Syngenta welcomes the opportunity to work alongside you, so that, together, we can build a better, brighter future.
