Heritage Cooperative developing conservation demo plots at Marysville Ag Campus location
Nov 01, 2022
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Director of Marketing & Communications
The project will consist of 12 plots of land throughout the campus that will be seeded with a variety of mixes, including pollinator habitat, upland habitat mixes, a windbreak, and native warm season grasses for grazing. These plots will provide insight and information to farmers on how they can utilize practices like these to assist in their stewardship efforts.
“As an agricultural cooperative, we believe we have a responsibility to our member-owners to help them do the right thing on every acre of land they farm,” said Jeff Osentoski, president and CEO of Heritage Cooperative. “As their trusted retailer, it is our responsibility to provide guidance on how new practices can also improve their operation. We are very excited about this opportunity to showcase conservation practices to our growers.”
Sarah Moore, precision ag and conversation specialist, is leading this project and works with Heritage agronomy customers by using precision ag technology to define areas where alternative crops and/or conservation practices are more profitable for farmers.
