Truterra, Cotton Incorporated, and GreenPoint Ag Holdings LLC Cotton Project

The goal of the collaboration between, Truterra LLC, Cotton Incorporated and GreenPoint Ag Holdings LLC is to advance sustainable agricultural practices on cotton acres in the mid-south and southeast. The project aims to establish a baseline of sustainable agricultural activity on 50,000 acres of cotton, streamline engagement with the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol, and track year over-year sustainability improvements.  There are no specific improvement targets, rather the focus is to show continuous improvement year-over-year.  The following KPIs are used to demonstrate year-over-year improvement including: Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Soil Conservation, Soil Carbon, Energy Use, Water Quality, Biodiversity, Conservation Practices Deployed.

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.
