LUBBOCK, TEXAS, U.S. — Forage Genetics International (FGI), a subsidiary of Land O’Lakes, is joining the National Sorghum Producers (NSP) as a new partner level sponsor in the NSP Industry Partner program.
Financial support from the Industry Partner Program allows NSP to continue to support the sorghum industry through opportunities in new markets, biofuels, major food brands and more.
“NSP believes in the work being done by FGI to provide our producers with improved forages and silages through innovative technologies that are necessary to positively impact the forage and feeding industries,” said Tim Lust, chief executive officer of NSP. “We look forward to partnering with them and welcome them to our industry partner program.”
FGI is a company working to better the forage industry through improved genetics that advance forages and benefit FGI customers. FGI has expanded its forage sorghum research activities in the last two years.
“We are excited to partner with NSP to further our support of the sorghum industry,” said Matt Sowder, director of FGI Commercial Products. “Working closely with NSP provides multiple benefits in advancing technology for FGI.”
FGI breeds, develops and produces alfalfa seed. FGI’s capabilities in forage technology and product development, coupled with its customer focused business, provide forage sorghum customers with the same level of high-quality product experience expected from FGI alfalfa, NSP said.
National Sorghum Producers represents U.S. sorghum producers and serves as the voice of the sorghum industry through legislative representation, regulatory representation and education.
