Sustainability Partnerships

Feb 21, 2022


Samantha Stegman, Precision Ag Manager and Dillon Langel, Agronomist had the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Jack Scott, Vice President of Sustainability, and his team at Nestle-Purina. It was a chance to generate some really great conversation about what conservation agronomy means to us in our area of the agriculture industry. Farmers Tim Daly and Jack Smith, both Innovative Ag Services customers, were also interviewed and had an opportunity to share their operation and experiences with Nestle-Purina. Videos like this are a great opportunity for growers to start taking credit for the work they’ve spent their lives committing to. 
 
Innovative Ag Services works closely with Land O’Lakes Truterra to gather information that makes qualifying for sustainable practice programs, such as carbon credits, quicker and easier. Many of these offers are a first-come, first-served basis. The quicker data inputting is completed, the quicker you can apply to be a part of these programs.  Our goal is to continuously work with our customers to keep their information up to date, making your application processes move as smoothly as possible. Enjoy the video!

Soil sampling is a good start to any fertility program. Test results identify available nutrients in the soil, allowing you to address nutrient deficiencies and improve the nutritional profile of your fields!

For example, you may have one area that requires more lime than others. It does not make sense to put the same rate of product in both places, each with different needs. Proper nutrient management can help you budget in-field resources, optimizing your potential return on investment.

For more information, contact your local IAS location or agronomist.
