American Soybean Association & Corteva Agriscience seek young leader applicants

The American Soybean Association (ASA) and Corteva Agriscience are seeking applicants for the 2019-20 Young Leader Program.

The Young Leader Program, sponsored by Corteva and ASA, is a two-phase educational program for actively farming individuals and couples who are passionate about the future possibilities of agriculture. The women and men who participate in this program are the leaders who shape the future of agriculture.

Phase I of the 2019-20 Young Leader program takes place in Indianapolis, Dec. 3-6. The program continues Feb. 25–29, 2020, in San Antonio, in conjunction with the annual Commodity Classic Convention and Trade Show.

Soybean grower couples and individuals are encouraged to apply for the program, which focuses on leadership and communication, the latest agricultural information and the development of a strong peer network. Spouses, even those not employed full-time on farm, are encouraged to attend and will be active participants in all elements of the program.

ASA, its 26 state affiliates, the Grain Farmers of Ontario and Corteva Agriscience will work together to identify the top producers to represent their state as part of this program.
