Sweeter World Sweepstakes iPad Winners
Poncho® Beta seed-applied insecticide made for a sweeter world in 2010 with a strong start to a great crop. Now, after the harvest, five growers are enjoying even more of the sweet life with winnings from the Sweeter World Sweepstakes.
Kevin Olmstead from Grafton, N.D., won the grand prize trip for two to the 2011 American Sugarbeet Growers Association annual meeting in Tucson, Ariz. The package includes conference registration, roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations for five
nights and a spa or golf day.
In addition to the grand prize winner, four first-place winners won a new Apple iPad®. The iPads come WiFi enabled, so growers can access their email, go to websites for weather and commodity prices, and update farm records from the field. The first-place winners are: Kurt Aakre from Karlstad, Minn., James Fanfulik of East Grand Forks, Minn., Ronald Jensen from Stephen, Minn., and David Marchbanks of Parma, Idaho.
The Sweeter World Sweepstakes is a demonstration of how Poncho Beta provides more to growers, says Bayer CropScience. Growers had the opportunity to enter the Sweeter World Sweepstakes online for three months from August 2 to October 31. More than 325 growers entered, learned about Poncho Beta and enhanced their sugarbeet knowledge online.
