SECURING OUR ROLE IN WORLD FOOD PRODUCTION
At NuWay Cooperative, we care about the long-term success of our member-owners. This means we strive to improve your bottom-line and maintain your land for future generations. Our newly launched SUSTAIN platform will help improve productivity and input efficiency while building soil health and enhancing stewardship of natural resources.
What is SUSTAIN?
SUSTAIN combines leading, highly effective and field-tested tools, technologies and practices that are proven to help growers improve nutrient use efficiency, soil health, and productivity. Growers participating in SUSTAIN will work with their NuWay Cooperative Account Manager to bring the latest learnings and science to the field in ways that are practical, usable, and effective in improving crop management for economic benefit and reduced risk.
Growers like you will benefit from SUSTAIN through:
- Improved farm management. SUSTAIN growers benefit from practices and technologies that improve efficiency, protect soil health, save money and maintain high yields.
- Increased market appeal for their farms. SUSTAIN will position growers at the forefront of marketplace momentum on sustainability. An increasing number of companies like Wal-Mart, General Mills, Campbell Soup, and Smithfield are developing and implementing sustainability programs aimed at improving the environmental footprint of commodity grain crops.
- Improved reputation. SUSTAIN offers growers and their retailers a way to document and communicate their effective and responsible management of the land. The program will enable growers to show their neighbors and the public at large the value their lands bring to water quality, climate stability, soil conservation, and food security.
By participating and implementing SUSTAIN, NuWay Cooperative will be leaders in providing the programs and services that enable growers to meet the new market demand for sustainably grown crops and benefit from improved economics of nutrient use efficiency, soil health and high productivity.
