Bayer CropScience‘s Alan Ayers will head the new board of directors for the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC). CTIC made the announcement, along with announcing Lara Moody of The Fertilizer Institute as vice-chair and Terry Tindall of the J.R. Simplot Company being named treasurer.

This board will continue that proud legacy, building strong partnerships that help farmers and the environment.”
“Alan has been a dedicated and active member of the CTIC board for years, and will be an outstanding leader,” says Karen A. Scanlon, CTIC’s executive director. “He’s a great example of the dedicated, hard-working people who make CTIC such a wonderful and effective organization.”
