Young people passionate about agriculture and ready to become leaders are invited to apply for the next class in the ASA Corteva Agriscience Young Leader Program. The program is sponsored by the American Soybean Association and Corteva. It’s a two-phase educational program for actively farming individuals and couples passionate about agriculture. Phase 1 takes place November 29-December 1 in Johnston, Iowa, while Phase 2 is March 7-11, 2023, at Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida. “As a member of the Class of 2009, I can tell you that this program is important and has had a real impact on not only the soybean industry but all of agriculture,” says ASA President Brad Doyle. Individual soybean growers and couples are encouraged to apply for the program, which focuses on leadership and communication, agriculture trends and information, and developing a strong and connected network.
