Applications open for Turn the Bag Blue & Gold program


Throughout February, applications for Turn the Bag Blue & Gold are open.

The program, sponsored by Mycogen Seeds, is a fundraising opportunity for the National FFA Organization. The program is in its fourth year and has raised more than $93,000 for local chapters, state FFA associations as well as the National FFA Organization.

The selected FFA chapters will team up with Mycogen managers and retailers to offer farmers the option to purchase corn hybrids. For every bag sold, participants earn money for their chapter. The bags purchased from FFA members arrive specially in packaged blue-and-gold bags as well.

“Seventeen FFA chapters have participated in the Turn the Bag Blue & Gold program since its introduction three years ago,” said Blake Courtney, Mycogen Seeds Marketing Communications Manager. “Along with raising funds to support chapters, the program teaches students about agronomy, sales, and customer service. Our Mycogen sales team and local retailers look forward to this mentorship experience every year.”

FFA chapters can apply here.
