NSP Welcomes Forage Genetics International as Industry Partner

LUBBOCK, Texas – National Sorghum Producers is pleased to announce the addition of Forage Genetics International (FGI), a subsidiary of Land O’ Lakes, as a new Partner Level sponsor in the NSP Industry Partner program.

FGI is a company driven to better the forage industry through improved genetics that advance forages and benefit FGI customers. FGI has expanded its forage sorghum research activities in the last two years in response to greater interest in forage sorghums from the beef and dairy industries.

“NSP believes in the work being done by FGI to provide our producers with improved forages and silages through innovative technologies that are necessary to positively impact the forage and feeding industries,” NSP CEO Tim Lust said. “We look forward to partnering with them and welcome them to our industry partner program.”

“We are excited to partner with NSP to further our support of the sorghum industry,” said Matt Sowder, director of FGI Commercial Products. “Working closely with NSP provides multiple benefits in advancing technology for FGI.”

For more than 25 years, FGI has led the forage industry with innovative genetic discoveries, variety developments and cutting-edge product introductions. FGI’s relentless drive for improved forage production is behind their unprecedented advancements. As the industry’s leading provider of forage solutions, FGI breeds, develops and produces premier alfalfa seed. FGI’s capabilities in forage technology and product development, coupled with their customer focused business, provide forage sorghum customers with the same level of high-quality product experience expected from FGI alfalfa.

Support from industry partners like FGI helps NSP continue to advocate for, promote and defend the sorghum industry. More information about the program can be obtained by contacting NSP Industry Relations Director Jamaca Battin at jamaca@sorghumgrowers.com or by visiting SorghumGrowers.com.
