The iconic blue FFA jacket, worn by more than four million young agricultural leaders since it was introduced in 1933, turns 80 this year. A community-centered program launched in 2008 by Syngenta and its retailer partners, has raised more than $2.6 million for the national organization.

Syngenta matches every $2,500 pledged by retailers to support the FFA Blue Jacket Program. At the community level, the program contributes a jacket and $500 to a high school FFA chapter designated as a recipient by a Syngenta retailer. The Blue Jacket Program also contributes a portion of its total donations to the National FFA Foundation.

Syngenta is a worldwide agribusiness company and offers a wide portfolio of crop protection chemicals.
