ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program is a great opportunity for soybean growers and their spouses who are interested in developing their leadership skills and knowledge of the soybean industry. The knowledge gained from the program is beneficial both on the farm and off. This program is open to soybean farmers in the twenty-six soybean growing states and Canada. One couple or individual per state will be chosen to participate. There are two phases of the training:
- Part I is held at Dupont Pioneer's headquarter in Johnston, Iowa November 27-30, 2012
- Part II is held in conjunction with Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Florida February 26-March 2, 2013
The program is managed and coordinated by Dupont Pioneer and the American Soybean Association.
