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

Achieve a 50% increase in pollinator habitat adoption in project area by December 2023.
First Party Verified
Ethanol plants will convert open land to native pollinator habitat by May 2020 and work with local Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Biologists to host a pollinator workshop at each location to promote and increase project awareness by October 2021.
First Party Verified

In 2020, Trenton Ag Products established 5 acres of pollinator habitat on-site with support from Pheasants Forever.
