Whole Farm Conservation Planning in Ag Retail
Grower relationships are where agricultural input providers can really have an impact on conservation. In order to grow those customer relationships it takes in-depth knowledge from staff on conservation programs, carbon markets, and how regenerative agriculture can work hand in hand. I will go into partnerships developed in Missouri and how we utilize those to impact staff knowledge and the services we provide to our member owners.
