Avena Foods Oats and Peas Innovation Project

Avena Food is seeking to meet industry interest by documenting sustainability actions from the production of peas and oats. The initial project goal is to establish a baseline with 25 to 30 farmers, identifying areas for potential sustainability improvements and working with them towards addressing the areas realized. This project will focus specifically on greenhouse gas emission reduction.

Engagement Targets

Notes: (1) I Minor fluctuations in the number of retained growers is expected from year to year. These fluctuations may be due to year-over-year crop rotation effects or other factors beyond the control of the project. Enrolled acres represent the total number of acres on an individual farm in a specific year. The ability to report enrolled acres is based on the Fieldprint Project Standard requirement that individual growers enrolled in projects enter at least 10% of the acres managed for a specific crop. (2) Entered acres represent the actual number of enrolled acres for which data is entered in the Fieldprint Platform for analysis.

Objectives

Collect data from 25 to 30 growers and complete the Field to Market Canada spread sheet. Providing each farmer participant with a PDF of findings and meet with the farmers virtually for annual ‘Grower School’ to explore potential next steps.
