In Argentina, millions of people work in agriculture. Fair labor on farms is an issue of great importance.In 2011, an audit of our fair labor compliance in Argentina carried out in partnership with the Fair Labor Association (FLA) showed key areas for improvement.
A subsequent supply chain review led to an ambitious program to enhance labor and safety practices for field workers on our seed supply farms. This included improving workers’ access to training focusing on health and safety risk identification and reporting. In 2015, our Argentine supply chain achieved nearly 100 percent compliance with the FLA Code of Conduct.
