DuPont Pledges Support to My American Farm Initiative
Date:1/11/2010

Funds help Farm Bureau inform consumers.

Washington and Des Moines, IA (Vocus) Jan. 11, 2010 – DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred and the American Farm Bureau Federation announced a $500,000 donation to the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s My American Farm virtual education program. The donation from Pioneer Hi-Bred, paid over three years, will enable the foundation to further build agricultural awareness and understanding through education.

The My American Farm project teaches agricultural literacy to consumers and the public through an interactive computer game. Players learn where food comes from in addition to learning how products get from the farm to their dinner plate.

“The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has identified a great opportunity for teaching the public about modern agriculture. Through science and productivity, farmers are feeding the world and bettering the lives of people every day,” said Frank Ross, vice president and regional director – Pioneer, North America. “We are pleased to partner on this initiative and support the cause of increased agricultural literacy.”

“The financial support of Pioneer Hi-Bred is critical for the success of the My American Farm project,” said Bob Stallman, president – American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. “We greatly appreciate the support and commitment to increase agricultural literacy through this important project.”
