Heritage Cooperative to work

to support stewardship on Ohio farms

DELAWARE, Ohio – Heritage Cooperative today announced it will work alongside Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN and Campbell Soup Company to help Ohio wheat farmers benchmark their stewardship work and strive to continue safeguarding the air, land and water. Together, the companies will seek to enroll 60,000 Ohio wheat acres in the program, which was previously piloted in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

“As a trusted advisor to Ohio farm families and a leader in delivering innovation to the farm gate, Heritage Cooperative is excited to work alongside Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN and Campbell Soup Company to support Ohio farmers’ stewardship efforts,” said Greg Spears, COO, Heritage Cooperative. “Working together, we can have a real impact, helping to safeguard the environment while also helping farmers focus on profit potential and the economic health of their farm.”

With help from their Heritage Cooperative advisor, Ohio farmers will now be able to use the Truterra™ Insights Engine from Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN to gather data on their stewardship practices. This will allow them to benchmark the impact of existing conservation practices, while using the advanced modeling capabilities of Truterra to explore ways they could further improve, acre-by-acre and field-by-field.

“Our work alongside Campbell Soup Company is all about supporting farmers, and local ag retailers like Heritage Cooperative, to benchmark their leadership and use technology to strive for an even greater impact,” says Matt Carstens, senior vice president of Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN. “Working together, we can harness data and insights for better analysis and assessment, help Ohio farmers target their stewardship efforts, and help Campbell Soup Company continue to gain a more transparent view of their supply chain as they strive to provide a sustainable product for consumers.”
