School is out, the pool is open and the grills are heating up! Modern agriculture and crop protection products help get healthy produce to your family’s backyard so that your cook-outs have plenty of food for all. Whether you prefer sweet corn, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, peaches, pineapples, or red, yellow and green peppers, farmers using advanced crop protection technologies and other modern farming techniques were instrumental in filling your plate.
As a modern agvocate, you know that growers work hard to monitor crop conditions and make precise decisions, such as if a specific pesticide is needed to combat certain crop threats. The Fourth of July is a great time to celebrate the literal fruits of their labor! Check out CropLife America’s Independence Day Communications Toolkit for tips on how to talk about modern ag and the benefits of crop protection products with your friends and family this holiday.
Then, snap a photo of your grill! We want to see what foods you like to cook in the summer, either with you and your guests in the photo or just the food being cooked. Send your photos to Whitney Gray and we’ll feature responses on our Tell Me More website.
