It’s time once again for farmers in 50 counties in North and South Carolina to participate in the Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities Angela Allen, Customer Advocacy Manager for Monsanto explains the program:

“Enrollment is open. Farmers have a chance to win $2500 to give back to their favorite non profit organization. The program is eligible in both North and South Carolina.

Farmers can apply at or call 877-267-2332. An eligible farmer is over 21 and is actively engaged in farming cotton, corn, soybeans, and/or vegetables. He must live in an eligible county which are listed on the site.

The funds in the past have been going to places like South Johnston High FFA and they used it to help leaders attend the FFA Leadership Conference. Volunteer fire departments also tend to be popular recipients.

The deadline is November 30th to apply.”
