Agriculture and Food

Agricultural and Food Agriculture and Food Message

In line with our mission to help the world grow the food it needs, we support programs throughout the world that promote sustainable agriculture and integrated programs to help combat poverty and hunger. We support HELPS International and Millennium Promise with donations of fertilizer and financial support to promote sustainable agriculture practices in India, Guatemala and eight countries in Africa.

In Florida and Louisiana, we partner with Future Farmers of America, 4H and local school districts to help educate students about the importance of agriculture. These hands-on, in-the-field and classroom efforts help demonstrate the important relationship that agriculture has to daily life. It also allows us to illustrate the important role of fertilizer in helping to feed the world.

The national Future Farmers of America (FFA) is an organization that closely aligns with Mosaic's values of integrity, excellence, education and sustainability. During fiscal 2009, we donated $115,000 to support FFA's National Leadership Conferences for State Officers in 10 regions as well as their premier career development event. We also support the FFA at the local level, with financial and program support in Minnesota and Florida. Since our founding, Mosaic has supported AG Venture, a program with the Florida State Fair and Hillsborough County schools, to teach students the importance of agriculture in the community.
