The state is seeking nominations for the 2019 Agrivision Award, Indiana’s top agricultural honor.
Now in its 13th year, the award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the agriculture industry, whether it’s developing a new technology, managing an agribusiness or organization, or working to address a global issue, to name a few.
“Indiana is on the front lines of agricultural innovation, and Hoosiers are pioneering advances every day,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. “This award allows us to recognize several of those individuals who have given so much to agriculture and Indiana over the years.”
The AgriVision Award is open to any Indiana resident and all sectors of the agriculture industry—from bioenergy to livestock to the agbiosciences.
Once a winner has been selected, the award will be presented by Crouch and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler during the Indiana State Fair Aug 2-18.
“We have some extraordinary individuals that make up Indiana’s agricultural community, and far too often, their work and accomplishments go unrecognized,” Kettler said. “It’s important that we acknowledge those who have been champions for agriculture and helped shape where the industry is today.”
