Land O'Lakes Truterra Ohio Wheat Project

The goal of the partnership between Heritage Cooperative and Truterra is to advance sustainable agricultural practices in North-central Ohio. A manufacturing facility in Willard, OH sources wheat from growers in this geography, and the intent is to deliver access to stewardship insights and improvement opportunities. There are no specific improvement targets, rather the focus is to show continuous improvement year-over-year.  Seven KPIs are used to demonstrate year-over-year improvement including: Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Nitrogen Use Efficiency, Soil Quality Trends, Wind Erosion, Sheet and Rill Erosion, Conservation Practices Deployed and Truterra™ Insights Score.

The 2019 baseline metrics on 60,000 acres in Ohio were shared with project partners in April 2020.  Year-over-year changes in KPIs and conservation practice adoption will be tracked and reported in Q2 2021.
