Monsanto Canada says it will continue its annual offer of $100,000 in donated farm inputs to support the Canadian Foodgrains Bank’s 2009 Community Growing Project program.
Farmer volunteers who manage the Canadian Foodgrains Bank growing projects will have the opportunity to work with their local Monsanto Canada field representative to access Roundup herbicides, Dekalb seed and other Monsanto products for use in their community growing project.
Last year, more than 100 growing projects took advantage of the Monsanto product offer in order to reduce their input costs and pass along a larger donation of grain and cash to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
“By receiving donated inputs growing project volunteers are able to increase the amount of grain and cash they can contribute to our work of ending hunger,” said Jim Cornelius, executive director of Canadian Foodgrains Bank. “We are grateful for the support provided by Monsanto Canada.”
