Research Triangle Park, N.C. (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

Bayer CropScience today launched its 150 Perspectives Campaign to encourage discussions around the future of agriculture among growers, consumers and others in agribusiness. The campaign is part of the 150th anniversary celebration of Bayers mission and their commitment to Science For A Better Life.

To help propel the future of farming over the next 150 years, now through Sept. 16, the company is asking for viewpoints and fresh thinking about the future of agriculture at http://www.150perspectives.bayer.com or on Twitter with #150Perspectives. Responses will be featured at Bayer CropSciences Farm Progress Show booth (Lot 441), as well as through various social media channels. Visitors to the site can explore a gallery of responses and entries on how others view the next 150 years of agriculture.

Bayer CropScience is committed to cultivating ideas and answers that sustain and enrich our environment and growing population, said Jim Blome, president and CEO, Bayer CropScience LP. That is why we, together with growers, consumers and other agricultural stakeholders, are thinking ahead 150 years to ensure a better life for all of us and future generations.

Participants who submit text or photo answers to the question How do you see the future of agriculture? will be entered into a sweepstakes. One grand-prize winner will be awarded $ 500 in cash, and four additional people will win $ 250 to put toward brightening their futures on and off the farm. Additionally, growers can earn up to $ 150 in cash-equivalent Innovation Plus points by entering the sweepstakes, sharing entries on social media and bringing the sweepstakes confirmation email or direct mail invitation to check in at the photo booth or Innovation Plus area inside the Bayer CropScience booth at Farm Progress Show 2013.* See official rules for details.
