People from all around

pushed back against the new technology that would go on to feed the world. But farmers knew that it could be trusted and that it was healthy for all.

And while many are hesitant

to trust the vaccine, it’s important to remember that this science is just like the science used every day in the field: it was created to help mankind live better, healthier lives. Simple as that.

So, if you or someone you know doesn’t trust the vaccine, just ask:

“Why should trusting science stop at your health?”


Let us help you

find a safe and effective vaccine so you can get back to enjoying all the great food our farmers make possible.
