"The technology that today's farmers use is much improved over what it was 50 years ago. That new technology not only helps farmers by improving their efficiency, but also reduces the cost of food to consumers and helps to preserve the natural environment we all live in."

HOW WE WORK

Each semester the Foundation engages with a diverse range of institutions including Ivy League institutions, liberal arts colleges, large state universities, and land grant universities. Through this program the Foundation has engaged with over 3 million students across more than 250 university campuses and other venues. The goal of the university engagement program is to create future champions for agriculture by providing experiential learning, leadership development opportunities, and to offer what is often student’s first opportunity to directly advocate to national-level policymakers.
