ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The American Soybean Association (ASA) and Corteva Agriscience are seeking applicants for the 2021 ASA Corteva Agriscience Young Leader Program.

The two-phase educational program is for actively farming individuals and couples passionate about the future possibilities of agriculture.

The program continues March 2-6, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas in conjunction with the Commodity Classic convention and trade show.
