Bayer CropScience and United Potato Growers of America (UPGA) plan to continue their commitment to sustainable agriculture and the world’s food supply by conducting education seminars to further high-production agriculture. As part of the announcement, Bayer CropScience has committed, for the second year, to be part of UPGA’s United Potato Partners sponsorship program.
“The support of United Potato Growers of America by Bayer CropScience has directly helped potato growers understand the tools necessary to properly plan for the production and marketing of their potato crop in a sustainable and profitable manner,” said Lee Frankel, UPGA president and chief executive officer. “Bayer CropScience is an important partner in the food supply chain to help growers achieve the yields and efficiencies necessary to feed the world.
Through United Potato Growers of America and the United Potato Partners seminars, potato growers are learning every year how to sustain and stabilize their operations at profitable levels.”
Local United Potato Partners seminars will be held this year in California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin.
