This week is the last week of AGCO’s Farm Sustainability Blog Contest! We still want you to share what you’re doing with sustainability on your farm. Write a short blog or submit a video post on what you’re doing to increase efficiency on your farm. You could also share how you are interacting with your community, or what you are doing to help support your local economy.
We will select 10 winning entries, and those entries will be posted on the AGCO blog so that they can be shared with others. In addition, the 10 winning authors will choose select organizations to receive a total of $5,000 in donations from AGCO!
Faced with the challenge of feeding a rapidly growing global population, efficiency on the farm is becoming increasingly important. We know that nobody knows this better than the farmers on the ground today, and that is why we want to hear from you! Sign up here, and share your story!

We know the importance of doing more with less, and we know that farmers do too. That’s why we want to hear your stories. So don’t forget to register for AGCO’s farm sustainability contest on July 9th, and share your farm sustainability with us! The contest will run from July 9th through July 31st, 2012.
Providing for a population that is projected to grow from 7 billion to 9 billion over the next 40 years will require increased food, fiber, and fuel. This will mean higher sustainable productivity per acre of land. Farmers manage the land they work on, and they know sustainability.
Long-term soil health will become more critical to farmer livelihoods as expansion of arable land is constrained. And, the availability of clean water for both personal use and agriculture and industry will be an increasing challenge as the global water needs grow along with population.
At AGCO, we believe the health of communities will continue to be tied to the health of local farming. Both rural and urban communities’ livelihoods rely on our global farming community’s ability to respond to the changing, growing social and environmental needs of farmers around the world. This is why we believe that it is important to promote sustainable practices on the farm.
Have you been enjoying the benefits of making your farm more sustainable? AGCO’s first ever sustainability blog contest kicks off on July 9th, and we want to hear your stories!
Share what you have been doing to make your farms more sustainable, and how it has helped you to do more with less. Be selected as one of ten finalists, and in addition to having your submission featured on the AGCO blog, you will also be able to support local farming communities by choosing a select organization to receive $500 in donations! The contest will run from Monday, July 9th, up until the Tuesday of July 31st.
