“It’s important to take care of agriculture’s greatest resource– our growers and their communities. Along with helping them with success on their operation, we’re committed to continuing the success of farming’s future through community outreach programs that give back and help them obtain the tools necessary for success,” Jody Wynia from Bayer CropScience said to attendees of Commodity Classic in San Antonio last week.
The success of LibertyLink– it is now in 85 brands of corn, cotton, canola and soybeans, has inspired Bayer to see to the success of the stewards of the land. Bayer will be donating 5 cents of every bag of LibertyLink soybean to the American Hearth Association’s Healthy for Good program for a total maximum donation of $500,000, a movement that will raise heart health awareness in rural communities.
As part of this partnership Bayer promoted the LibertyLink Sweepstakes, offering growers a chance to win up to 500 acres worth of the LibertyLink system for either cotton or soybeans. Winners were honored Commodity Classic event, along with the Iowa FFA for their efforts in promoting the sweepstakes.
