We’ve been hard at work, see industry insights, our accomplishments with our partners to provide organizations a standard in sustainable practices.
Truterra President Tom Ryan sat down with Agri-Pulse Open Mic to discuss Truterra’s work with farmers and their ag retailers to support their sustainability journeys and provide solutions that benefit their farms agronomically, economically and environmentally.
Tom told host Jeff Nalley that Truterra focuses on the full economic, agronomic and environmental benefits for the farm. Truterra has established itself as an industry leader in the ag sustainability and focuses on helping growers manage the practices in ways that are productivity yield additives, not detractors.
During the interview he noted a conversation he had with his brother about their family’s farm, which adopted vertical tillage last fall.
“It’s a big step to change the practices like this, but we’re planting into the best seed bed we’ve ever had,” said Tom. “My brother’s comments to me are like, ‘Yep, I’m sold. I can see it.’ We have to find opportunities to give farmers this same kind of experience.”
Still, Tom recognizes that every grower is at a different place in their sustainability journey.
“We have to recognize that every grower is at a different stage of their sustainability journey and we aim to provide a suite of solutions that meets them where they’re at. Then, together with Truterra’s ag retailers, build a plan,” he said.
Part of Truterra’s sustainability solutions is its carbon program. The business recently announced its 2022 carbon results. Truterra paid more than $5.1 million to farmers last year to store carbon, bringing the total for the first two years of its program to over $9 million.
