America’s Farmers

Working alongside the local farmers, their causes are our causes. In order to make a difference in the community, DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine partnered with the America’s Farmers program, sponsored by the Bayer Fund.

Support Your Community in Three Simple Ways

Grow Communities

America’s Farmers Grow Communities offers farmers the chance to enroll to win a $2,500 donation to direct toward their favorite local eligible nonprofit organization. The program has awarded more than $33 million to support local efforts to feed the hungry, purchase life-saving EMS equipment, support ag youth programs, buy school classroom resources and more.

Grow Rural Education

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education calls on farmers to nominate public school districts to compete for grants to enhance STEM education. The program has awarded over $18 million to more than 1,000 rural school districts to fund STEM projects like technology upgrades, greenhouses and laboratory equipment. 

Grow Ag Leaders

America’s Farmers Grow Ag Leaders awards $1,500 scholarships to high school seniors and college students pursuing ag-related fields of study. Every student application requires two farmer endorsements. Over 350 scholarships totaling more than $500,000 will be awarded across the U.S. in 2020.
