I think he’s the head cheerleader for the Conservation Technology Information Center. He’s board member Ron Olson, Mosaic Company, Eastern Region, Senior Agronomist. Ron is seen announcing door prize winners during our lunch at the 2012 Conservation in Action Tour.
Ron told me that the actions and work that CTIC has exhibited over many years is what has kept them interested. He says it’s all about building partnerships with farmers, conservation groups and government agencies. He says “The Mosaic Company understands that if we’re going to make a difference in this world and improve conservation it doesn’t happen by one company doing it. It takes a great cooperative partnership effort.” Like many on the tour he says this was the best tour ever. Ron says that sustainability is a value that companies have to form and the work that CTIC is doing in building partnerships across the ag industry is helping farmers remain profitable which is a key component of sustainability.
