CAST Welcomes New Reps to the CAST Community

Throughout the years, CAST has benefited from the guidance and leadership of many respected experts, and the three latest additions are no exception. Busy people put in time to help promote CAST's mission.

We give a warm welcome to our three new Board of Representatives members: Jayson Lusk, Agricultural and Applied Economics Association; Melissa Johnson, Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont; and Tom Oswald, United Soybean Board. We feel very thankful to have their expertise with the CAST community.
