“FarmHer,” airing this fall on RFD-TV, is a Syngenta-sponsored program that will focus on the importance of women in agriculture. 

Women featured on the program are women who exemplify FarmHer’s theme “love the land, care for the community and feed the people.”

“Syngenta recognizes how valuable women are in agriculture all across America,” Dan Burdett, Syngenta's head of customer marketing, said. “From driving tractors on the farm to discovering innovations in the lab, women continue to make major contributions to our industry.”

FarmHer was founded in 2013 by Marji Guyler-Alaniz who began by photographing women in agriculture as part of her passion as a professional photographer. “This partnership with RFD-TV and Syngenta takes what I started with ‘FarmHer’ and launches it to the next level.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Syngenta to help bring the compelling stories of women in agriculture to homes all across the country,” Raquel Gottsch, executive producer of “FarmHer,” said. “RFD-TV is pleased to work with a company that has a genuine interest in the work and passion of all Americans who work in this industry – no matter their gender.”

The program, which is slated to premier in September, will use still photography, video and stories from the featured women and their families.
