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

Enroll 25,000 acres of corn (grain) per year with sustainable continuous improvement plans and reporting.
Second Party Verified

Sustainability data has been collected and analyzed representing 25,000 acres for the 2020 crop year.

Promote soil health practices including no-tillage and use of cover crops to all participating growers annually.
