Throughout this past year, CropLife America produced videos on notable issues including pollinator health, conservation, global agricultural policy and the evolution of modern farming. This year also marked CLA’s 80th anniversary – a chance to celebrate how far agriculture and the crop protection industry has come since 1933. CLA’s YouTube page is the place to go to re-visit videos from 2013 and beyond. For those who missed the 2013 National Policy Conference or launch of the CropLife Foundation report, “The Role of Seed Treatment in Modern U.S. Crop Production,” full recaps are accessible any time! For members of a National FFA chapter, don’t miss CLA interviews with some your fellow future leaders in agriculture.
Below is a selection of five popular CLA videos that cover a range of issue and were produced this year:
