Growing for the future program launched by Warner Seeds, Inc.

Oct 9, 2017

Warner Seeds, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with the Kansas FFA to support the future of agriculture, student development and local FFA chapters across the state. With every bag of Warner grain sorghum or seed corn purchased through June 30, 2018 Warner Seeds, Inc. and its dealer network will donate $1 per bag to Kansas FFA chapters. These donations will help FFA continue to further its mission of making a positive difference in the lives of students and shine a spotlight on the Kansas production agricultural industry.
“We believe in the power of the FFA and the bright future that these young agriculture leaders will have in their communities and in the farming industry,” said Rusty Smallwood, sales manager for Warner Seeds, Inc. “We are proud to be able to support local chapters and help provide opportunities for growth for Kansas FFA members.”
In addition to the chapter-level donations, Warner Seed, Inc. is a new, Two-Star Sponsor of the 90th Kansas FFA Convention.
“We’re thrilled to work with companies like Warner Seeds that share our dedication and passion for Kansas agriculture. Our goal is to develop students’ potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education, and we couldn’t do this without the support of our partners,” said Beth Gaines, executive director of the Kansas FFA Foundation.
