ASA staff members Bill Schuermann and Michelle Hummel also participated in the event.“It’s important for us to take time, even during the busy harvest season, to meet with other farmer-leaders, agronomists and scientists around the world to share ideas and build relationships as we are all working together toward a common goal of sustainability and providing the food that feeds all of our families.”Prior to the beginning of the Future Forum, ASA farmer-leaders and staff participated in a meeting with attendees from North America and Bayer CropScience executives to discuss challenges such as pollinator health concerns and specific regulatory and biotech acceptance challenges.  After the Future Forum, ASA leaders also had the opportunity to meet with Bayer CropScience Chief Executive Officer Liam Condon. The meetings and discussions with Bayer CropScience executives and others in the industry were very insightful, and ASA appreciates the tremendous effort of the Bayer CropScience team to organize this event, and we thank them for inviting ASA’s participation.Click here to see more pics of ASA in action at the forum.last_img read more
