The CropLife Ambassador Network is the outreach education program of the Mid America CropLife Association. Our volunteer ambassadors speak with 4th- 6th grade students across the Midwest about the benefits of modern agriculture. The videos will be used to supplement our ambassador program by sharing our message on the benefits of modern agriculture through young adults using a medium popular with today’s youth.
