Edward Silva of Davis is one of 10 finalists in Syngenta’s “Drive to Thrive” contest, and is the winner of a touchscreen tablet. Online voting will determine the grand prize winner, who will receive a $500 gas card.
The competition, which launched in April, invited growers and other agricultural industry professionals to describe what makes their farms or agribusinesses thrive.
“From new technology to family, the topics of participants’ responses were both thoughtful and heartfelt,” said Wendell Calhoun, communications manager at Syngenta.
All 10 winning essays and photos were posted to the Thrive website, www.syngentathrive.com. Online voting will continue through Sept. 1.
Syngenta employs more than 28,000 people in more than 90 countries who are dedicated to increasing crop productivity, protecting the environment and improving health and the quality of life.
