The American Soybean Association offers congratulations to Andy Bendsend of Dallas, Wisconsin (Midwest Region), Keith Masser from Sacramento, Pennsylvania (Northeast Region) and Matt Griggs hailing from Humboldt, Tennessee (South Region) as regional winners of this year’s Conservation Legacy Awards.

The three winners will be honored at the ASA Awards Banquet at Commodity Classic on March 3. At that time one of the three will be announced as the national winner.

The Conservation Legacy Awards program was created to recognize the efforts and achievements of soybean farmers to improve the environment and produce more sustainable soybeans. Winners are selected by a national committee that evaluates each candidate’s environmental and economic program. Sponsors for the award are: ASA, BASF, Monsanto, Corn & Soybean Digest, the United Soybean Board/Soybean Checkoff and Valent.
