Morrisville, NC (January 5, 2020) – Nufarm Range and Pasture Solutions is pleased to introduce the Grassmanship Scholarship Program, awarding one $5,000 and four $1,000 scholarships to current and incoming college agriculture students.
Nufarm offers a wide range of proven herbicide solutions to protect and improve range and pasture quality from the threat of land diminishment caused by invasive weeds. This stewardship approach, in combination with other land management practices, is part of what Nufarm calls Grassmanship.
Nufarm’s new scholarship program emphasizes that Grassmanship means working together to do all we can to be excellent stewards of the land. It’s nurturing the relationship between grazing quality today and sustainability tomorrow. It’s a commitment to the future of agriculture and the pasture management practices that proudly support it.
“The importance of investing in students who wish to support the future of agriculture cannot be overstated,” said Nufarm Crop Protection Customer and Brand Marketing Manager, Chris Bowley. “It is our vision that Grassmanship Scholarships will continue to assist ag students and their contributions for years to come.”
Incoming and current undergraduate college and university students pursuing agricultural degrees are encouraged to apply. The application period will be open through March 31, 2021. Winners will be notified by May 1, 2021. The Nufarm Grassmanship Scholarship application can be accessed at bit.ly/grassmanship.
