Applications Open for the ASA Young Leader Program


The American Soybean Association and Corteva Agriscience are seeking applicants for the 2021 ASA/Corteva Young Leader Program. The Young Leader Program is a two-phase educational program for actively-farming individuals and couples who are passionate about the future possibilities in agriculture. The women and men who get involved in the program are the leaders who will help shape the future of agriculture. Lucas and Becky Miller, Class Participants in 2020, say, “The ASA-Corteva Agriscience Young Leader Program is a phenomenal opportunity for any person or couple who is interested. It’s so much more than just a few days of leadership training in a classroom.” Phase 1 of the 2021 program takes place December 1-4 in Johnston, Iowa. The program continues March 2-6, 2021, at the Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas. “The Young Leader Program has had a tremendous impact on the soybean industry,” says ASA President Bill Gordon. “Many of the leaders at the state and the national level got their start in this program, including me.” Soybean grower couples and individuals are encouraged to apply for the program.
