CropLife America reaches out to new U.S. president-elect
CropLife America (CLA) President and CEO Jay Vroom released a statement the day after the election, congratulating the president-elect on his victory.

“CropLife America wishes to congratulate Donald J. Trump on being elected as our next president of the United States," Vroom said. "We would also like to commend the many senators and members of the House of Representatives who retained their seats or won for the first time, and additional congratulations to those who offered loyal opposition."

Vroom recalled the early days of the nation -- when agriculture was the mainstay -- and how a productive agricultural sector is still vital to the U.S. He reminded the new president-elect and legislators that growing enough food for all is essential to the nation's success.

CLA represents crop protection manufacturers and distributors nationwide. Its members are ready to open dialogues with the newly elected officials regarding a variety of topics, including scientifically backed pesticide regulation.

The group also joined with 1,100 others in signing the National Association of Manufacturer's letter committing to help unite the country.

"Much work lies ahead of us, and we in the private sector are eager to get started and continue to partner with government officials on the important issues surrounding growing affordable food in an environmentally sustainable manner,” Vroom said.
