ZimmNews – August 17, 2012

Hello ZimmComm Fans:

The annual International Federation of Agricultural Journalists Congress is taking place in Sweden and Chuck is there courtesy of our long time sponsor for this event, Dupont Pioneer. He’s already got a lot of photos online for your viewing pleasure. While Chuck is in Sweden Cindy visited Collinsville, IL for a Respect the Rotation event with Bayer CropScience. The summer of agriblogging fun continues.

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Do ag journalists (broadcast/print/web) adhere to good ethical practices in reporting?” This is just in time for the ag journalists gathering in Sweden for the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists Congress. I’ll be sharing the results with them.

Our poll results: Sixteen percent said they all do; sixty-eight percent said most do; and sixteen percent said most do not.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “Which team for President would be best for agriculture?” What do you think…who is the better choice for office when it comes to supporting our nation’s farmers and ranchers?

Here are some interviews from this week you might have missed:
Dave Hollinrake, Bayer CropScience, Respect the Rotation
Johan Rockstrom, Stockholm Resilience Center, talks about a damaged world Mike Wilson, Farm Futures, now past President of IFAJ
