Director of Industry Affairs, Doug Rushing meets with DFB President Richard Wilkins at the 2019 AFBF annual convention.

Delaware Farm Bureau President Richard Wilkins, right, met with Doug Rushing, director of industry affairs for Bayer Crop Science at the American Farm Bureau Federation annual convention in January. Wilkins was able to personally thank Rushing for Bayer’s sponsorship in the amount of $3,000 to be used by the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation in an educational outreach program. Through the program, farmers will tell stories of how local Delaware farm families are utilizing science and technology to provide safe, affordable and nutritious foods to consumers.

Bayer’s Crop Science division is the third largest innovative agricultural input company in the world and has businesses in high-value seeds, crop protection and non-agricultural pest control.

The non-profit Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation, incorporated in 2013, was created to build awareness, understanding and positive public perception about Delaware’s farm operations, promote fresh local food and sponsor the Ag Education Mobile Classroom. To learn more, visit http://www.defb.org.
