In the program’s three-year lifetime, Bayer CropScience has awarded more than $87,000 to local groups nominated by canola farmers.
“We believe the benefits of InVigor hybrids result in More for Everyone,” says Tom Schuler, BioScience business development manager for Bayer CropScience. “When farmers choose InVigor canola, they benefit from ?more’ – stronger early-season growth and consistently better yields. The More for Everyone awards embody that spirit and enable us to extend the benefits of InVigor canola to more people, to people who are important to our customers.”
The total donation amount is based off of Early Book sales. For every bag of InVigor seed booked before Feb. 29, 2012 for the 2012 planting season, 50 cents went toward this year‘s awards. Farmers who participated in Early Book had the opportunity to nominate a deserving organization in their communities. A panel of three independent judges chose the organizations to be honored from 109 submissions. Other groups receiving More for Everyone awards are:
