This year at BASF used its presence at the event to raise money for the FFA, a cause which corn and bean communications specialist Colby Mower is very passionate about. “We’re committed to the future of the industry,” said Mower. “We’re big supporters, both as a company and me personally, so we felt like it was a good chance to give back.” The FFA “Wheel of Fortune” ended up raising over $5800, which will be donated to the FFA chapters chosen by the ASTA CSS participants who spun the wheel.
Mower says they are also proud to support the media at ASTA CSS by sponsoring a comfortable space for us to work, something they do at many industry events. “We have also felt that the ag media provide a great service to the industry,” he said. “So we’ve always been a big supporter to make sure our media partners have the best accommodations to do their jobs.”
