On August 15 and 16, 11 attendees from nine ASTA member companies took part in an Industry Immersion event hosted by ASTA’s Leadership, Education and Development (LEAD) Committee. The event, held in central Iowa, included four tours of seed facilities: Corteva in Johnston; Bayer in Slater; Ag Reliant in Ogden; and Syngenta in Slater. Throughout the tours, attendees saw and learned about treatment facilities, research plots, commercial-scale production lines, marker assisted breeding techniques, and more. The tours were not only educational, but also provided individuals from different companies with the opportunity to learn from and network with one another.
