Agronomy Week runs today Monday, April 5 through Friday, April 9. It’s a week to salute agronomic professionals who play a key role in supporting farmer success, and it is hosted for the fifth consecutive year by the DEKALB, Asgrow, and Deltapine brands. The week-long event this year features a new FFA scholarship program, culminating in an exciting live television event.
“The science of agronomy and the agronomists who bring that science to life are vital to our industry,” said Pete Uitenbroek, brand lead. “So, during Agronomy Week 2021, our brands will be sharing world-class agronomic advice and education, as well as recognizing those commendable professionals who have contributed so much to the advancement of this field.”
Uitenbroek said new to Agronomy Week this year is the Agronothon, which will air from 9 to 11 p.m. CDT on Thursday, April 8, on RFD-TV to raise FFA scholarship funds for agronomy students. Featuring entertainment and educational programming, the Agronothon will grant viewers the opportunity to call in and have their agronomy questions answered by the brands’ technical agronomists live on the air.
DEKALB, Asgrow, and Deltapine will donate $10 for every farmer question submitted throughout the week at AgronomyWeek.com or on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #Agronothon, and $100 per question asked during the live Agronothon.
All farmers are invited to participate in Agronomy Week 2021, regardless of the seed brand they plant.
