As president and CEO of CropLife America – the largest national trade organization representing developers, manufacturers, formulators, and distributors of agricultural pesticides across the U.S. – Vroom has testified numerous times before U.S. congressional and regulatory bodies, and represents the U.S. plant science solution industry internationally. “The crop protection industry is committed to hearing and responding to consumer questions and concerns about U.S. agriculture, and to better communicating our investment and dedication to protecting human health and the environment,” said Vroom at a recent symposium. Vroom has also spearheaded CLA's Modern Agriculture initiative, which was created to properly depict the innovation, stewardship, and advancements continually made by growers to sustainably produce higher-quality products with a smaller environmental footprint.
