Farmers were nominated by regional third parties including grower groups, nonprofit organizations, universities, or other technology advisers, and were judged by a panel of global agriculture industry leaders based on program criteria. The ten global leaders will receive lifetime membership, training and other opportunities from Global Farmer Network®, enabling them to share their experiences with other farmers as well as engage broadly about the agriculture industry. Nine regional leaders will also work with the Global Farmer Network team to expand their skills to lead conversations to advance the adoption of climate positive farming practices.
“These leaders have proven that sustainability does not have to come at the expense of profit or productivity,” said Ashish Batra, Global Regulatory Affairs and R&D Sustainability Leader, Corteva Agriscience. “We’re providing farmers a global platform to broadly share their successes and challenges to highlight how the agriculture industry can meet the world’s growing food and fuel demands while protecting valuable land and water resources.”
