September 10, 2008
Editor's note: Special thanks to DuPont Crop Protection for its continued support of the Environmental Respect Awards program, now in its 18th year. Dupont's support — both financial and in the spirit of stewardship that buoys and sustains these awards — provides not just recognition of ag businesses worldwide that demonstrate leadership in environmental and community awareness, but help to spread this information, enthusiasm, and experience across the globe.
Scott Firlus and wife Kelly of Wisconsin River Agronomy — National Winner of the 2007 Environmental Respect Awards (ERA), sponsored by DuPont Crop Protection, CropLife® and Farm Chemicals International — learned more about Brazil's stance on stewardship with visits to 2007's and 2005's World of Respect winners, as well as coffee and sugarcane plantations.
