Syngenta donates $1,200 to Nebraska FFA chapters

The funds will support training, programming and community development for future agricultural leaders.

Syngenta is donating $1,200 to several Nebraska FFA chapters, including the Cross County-Stromsburg, Hampton and McCool Junction chapters of the National FFA Organization, concluding the season-long campaign at its York, Neb., Grow More Experience site.

The donation is evenly split among the chapters. As the number of open agricultural jobs continues to outpace the number of educated professionals available to fill them, the funds support ongoing training and programming for future agricultural leaders in local communities.

"Syngenta takes pride in its support of local ag communities, especially as the need for educated agriculture professionals continues to grow," says Ann Rengel, Syngenta customer event and trade show lead. "Donations like these directly support the students who represent the future of American agriculture, providing them with education and resources to further their involvement in the ag industry."

The donation amount is based on the number of visitors who registered at Syngenta field events hosted at the company's Grow More Experience and Golden Harvest Agronomy in Action sites this year.

Site hosts encouraged all event attendees to complete a digital registration form, and for every form completed with a valid, personal email address, Syngenta donated $5 to that site's designated local FFA chapter(s). The total nationwide donation reached $16,400.

The Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action site events provided visitors with educational opportunities, including hands-on agronomic trials and product demonstrations. Supported by teams of local agronomic experts, each site exhibited the latest agricultural technology — showcasing how Syngenta seeks to accelerate innovation by addressing the local environmental and economic needs of growers.
