America’s Farmers

Staying involved in your community is important to us. That’s because you’re not just our customer – you’re a member of our family. Through the America’s Farmers advocacy program, we’re recognizing Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio farmers for their hard work and commitment to their industry and community. ​

• Help strengthen your community. Share ideas in the Grow Communities contest for a chance to win $2,500 for the local nonprofit of your choice. One farmer from every eligible Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio County will win. Learn more.

• Our Grow Ag Leaders program awards Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky students with $1,500 college scholarships to help them develop the skills they need to succeed in careers in agriculture. The entry period starts November 15, 2016. You can endorse student applicants as well. Learn more.

• Give back to your local school district. Nominate it for a $25,000 Grow Rural Education grant. Nomination period is closed for 2016. Learn more.

• Nominate your outstanding farm mom, wife or sister for the Farm Mom of the Year award. This program recognizes amazing moms who are committed to their families, farms, communities and agriculture. Five regional winners will receive $5,000 each and one grand prize winner will receive an additional $5,000. Learn more.

• Invest an acre by donating the revenue from an acre of your crops to the Invest an Acre program. Your donation will go directly to your local food bank. To support this effort, Monsanto will match all farmer donations. Get involved.

We hope you’ll join us in supporting local families by participating in these initiatives. ​​​​​
