The #GiveACrop network was developed to start a conversation about the necessity and importance of pesticides to farmers. With a little humor we hope to get more people interested in learning about this complex and serious topic. We all need to eat. But less than 2 percent of the U.S. population is involved in agriculture. That’s why we think it’s a really big deal to make sure conversations about environmental health and human safety include facts established by sound scientific studies.
#GiveaCrop. It’s more than a hashtag. It’s the satisfying crunch of spreading the word about pesticides. Whether you’re a proud grower or a satisfied shopper, when you #GiveaCrop you’re saying that you care about the facts and the science behind them. So go ahead, take a harvest selfie. Show us your bumper crop. And tag it like you mean it.
