Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST) reports:

Nominations are open for the 2013 Borlaug CAST Communication Award, an honor that recognizes professionals actively working in the agricultural, environmental, or food sectors who are promoting agricultural science in the public policy arena.

This award has become an influential component in the efforts to keep agricultural issues and programs in the public eye and in front of national and world policymakers.

Organized by the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology, and sponsored by DuPont Pioneer, the award carries on the legacy of Dr. Norman Borlaug.

The 2012 prize winner, Dr. Carl Winter, uses humor and music to communicate important messages about food safety and agriculture. The respected professor from the University of California--Davis is the author of two books and more than 100 publications. He serves on committees, teaches communication courses to graduate students, and testifies before the U.S. Congress on pesticide/food safety issues. Other notable recent winners include Professor Catherine Bertini, former head of the World Food Programme, and Dr. Akin Adesina, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development for Nigeria.

Words, deeds, and programs need to become the actions that help farmers and consumers worldwide. CAST welcomes nominations for those who effectively communicate the importance of agriculture now and in the future.

The award winner will receive a bronze sculpture, an honorarium, and an invitation to give a presentation at an award ceremony.
