Monsanto has launched an advertising campaign to pay tribute to the contributions of American farmers. In an effort to show the diversity of our customers, these farm families were selected from various parts of the country. For two consecutive years, this initiative has featured a member of the National Black Growers Council: Ray Sneed from Tennessee and P.J. Haynie from Virginia. We proudly applaud both the Sneed and Haynie Farms and thank Monsanto for sharing their rich histories with the rest of America.
