A tree from the Bayer booth at the Farm Progress Show was recently planted at the Northwest Iowa Soccer Complex in Spencer. Present at the planting were Dr. Alex Pruitt, director of fundraising, Northwest Iowa Soccer Club; Colleen Hart Gerdeman, Bayer CropScience; Scott Simpson, president of Northwest Iowa Soccer Club; and Dana Gee, MaxYield Cooperative.
During 2012 Farm Progress Show, Bayer CropScience, along with local retailers, will donate eight trees to community groups throughout the state.
Northwest Iowa Soccer Club in Spencer will receive one of the Bayer CropScience trees in conjunction with MaxYield Cooperative.
"At Bayer CropScience, we like to help communities grow as well as crops, and we're excited to do both at this year's Farm Progress Show," said Randy Bloom, district manager for Bayer CropScience. "We look forward to planting these trees, and hope to see the trees as well as the groups who receive them bloom for years to come."
