Syngenta is the latest sponsor to sign up to support American Agri-Women Drive Across America, joining several others including Bayer CropScience, the Renewable Fuels Association and AgriPulse in the five-month educational and advocacy tour. American Agri-Women (AAW), the nation’s largest coalition of farm, ranch and agri-business women, is celebrating 40 years of advocating for agriculture with its “Drive Across America.”
“We appreciate the support Syngenta has provided us for this campaign and in many other ways over the years. Many of our members have attended Syngenta’s Leadership At Its Best training and are now more effective and confident advocates for agriculture,” says AAW President Sue McCrum. “Syngenta has been our partner on many issues and shares our commitment to America’s farmers.
McCrum and other leaders will drive in a specially wrapped pick-up truck, participating in educational, network and advocacy events hosted by AAW’s more than 50 affiliates. The Drive will finish at the 2015 annual convention in Portland, Maine.
