Tuesday Pioneer’s Jamie Butts visited Ohio’s FFA State Officer Team and she didn’t come empty handed. She brought along a check for $10,000 on behalf of Pioneer Hi-Bred and the Northeast Business Unit. This monetary support will be used specifically for the leadership training of the Ohio FFA State Officers in three programs including Blast-Off, the National Leadership Conference and for State leadership training.

Changing global demands for diverse food supply and sustainable energy means the need for ongoing innovation in the agriculture industry. Building appropriate workforce is critical to an effort to meet growing glabal demands and Pioneer is commited to supporting organizations like the Ohio FFA to help prepare our youth to become leaders in the industry.
