Current litigation’s in Iowa about nutrient run off will affect how growers farm. Our SUSTAIN Platform will introduce fertility practices that will lead to reduced run off, new management strategies, and potentially create higher yields.

Our goal for South Central Coop’s SUSTAIN Platform is to be a provider of services that are documented to improve efficiency and anticipate future trends regarding sustainability. This program is designed to position our growers favorably, and provide services that prevent growers from yield impacts of soil loss/degradation. This will give growers more confidence by having better information to understand and manage their operations. SUSTAIN is ideally positioned to engage growers, deliver programs and aggregate sustainability performance data in ways that do not compromise our growers privacy.

SUSTAIN combines best-in-class nitrogen management tools and products with conservation practices that can help your farm be more sustainable. South Central Cooperative sales staff are trained on how to use these tools to maximize benefits for growers. Growers can increase profits by $3.50 to $12.50 per acre by using SUSTAIN practices.
