Senator Kay Hagan Praises Ag Biotechnology

Senator Hagan on Biotechnology

Last May, North Carolina's U.S. Senator, Kay Hagan (D) spoke at the  North Carolina Biotechnology Center's first ever ag biotech symposium.  CLA's Jay Vroom and Bayer CropScience's Bill Buckner (current CLA board chair) also appeared on the same program.  In her speech, Senator Hagan praises modern agriculture for its economic and educational benefits as well as its innovation.

Hagan notes that to solve global crises on limited resources, farmers must be able to get every drop out of every acre of land to be able to produce enough food for a growing world population. Many of CropLife America's member companies are helping to solve these crises with their innovative crop protection  and biotechnology products.
