Now Seeking Nominations for the 2010 No-Till Innovator Awards
Greensboro, N.C., USA, March 31, 2010--Syngenta Crop Protection and No-Till Farmer are seeking nominations to honor outstanding leaders of the conservation-tillage industry. The No-Till Innovator Awards, now in its 15th year, are open to individuals and groups in the United States and Canada who practice, promote and/or demonstrate commitment to soil conservation, regardless of the crop grown, or brand of equipment, seed or crop protection products used.
“At Syngenta, we feel it’s important to honor the exceptional growers, educators, organizations and others who are devoted to making no-till programs more effective, economical and beneficial for the environment,” said David Piñon, communications manager for Syngenta. “Recognizing the efforts of exceptional innovators by nominating them for an award reinforces the value of this practice. It also provides more examples to motivate others to institute conservation tillage and other practices beneficial to the environment.”
Nominations are open to individuals or groups, and self-nominations are also accepted. The No-Till Innovator Awards recognize excellence in each of the following four categories. The deadline for nominations is Friday, July 16, 2010.
The 2010 winners will be announced at the National No-Tillage Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, Jan. 12-15, 2011. The National No-Tillage Conference, now entering its 19th year, has provided industry-leading agronomic information, as well as unique discussion and education opportunities. Throughout its lifespan, the conference has featured several of the best no-till pioneers and trendsetters from North America, making it an ideal place to honor the No-Till Innovators each year.
No-Till Innovator Award winners will receive complimentary conference registration and lodging for the duration of the 2011 National No-Tillage Conference, as well as a special token of appreciation to commemorate their achievements.
