Agronomy Week continues through April 10. During Agronomy Week, farmers can pay tribute to their agronomic team, including agronomists, seed dealers and crop consultants by nominating up to three individuals at AgronomyWeek.com or by posting the professionals’ names on the DEKALB Asgrow Facebook page or Twitter with #AgronomyWeek and #contest.
The DeKalb, Asgrow and Deltapine seed brands started the program. This is the fourth year as an industrywide recognition.
Nominating farmers will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win daily prizes, as well as an Ultimate Field Day grand prize this summer if public health conditions permit. A baseball-themed video to help promote farmer participation in Agronomy Week will be featured on social media.
“Agronomy Week is an opportunity for farmers to express thanks for the expertise and commitment of agronomic professionals who work closely with them throughout the growing season to help maximize their success,” said Pete Uitenbroek, DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine brand lead.
