Nominees sought for state’s highest agricultural award


Nominations are being accepted for the 2022 AgriVision Award, the highest agricultural honor presented by the state.

This award, now in its 16th year, was established by the lieutenant governor and Indiana State Department of Agriculture to recognize Indiana’s agricultural leaders who are ensuring the state is and remains a global center for food and agricultural innovation and commercialization.

The AgriVision Award is open to any Indiana resident and all sectors of the agriculture industry, from bioenergy to livestock to the agbiosciences. Any person or organization may submit a nomination through July 1.

Previous AgriVision Award winners have included individuals who have made significant contributions to the agriculture industry, whether it’s developing a new technology, managing an agribusiness or organization or working to address a global issue.

To nominate an individual, complete a form online at and email it to Ashley Fletcher-Shirley at [email protected].

Once a winner has been selected, the award will be presented by Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and ISDA Director Bruce Kettler during the Celebration of Agriculture at the 2022 Indiana State Fair.
