Managing Well for Future Generations
NuWay Cooperative strongly believes in sustainability, which we define as doing the right thing to make sure the food we produce is safe, to care for the land and to preserve our way of life, not only for this generation but for generations to come. This involves keeping our water clean, our soil uncontaminated and our climate stable.
Food safety and environmental stewardship are hot topics in the media these days. Our goal is to help our customers make the right choices and to get the word out that farmers are the best stewards, managing their land with the idea of passing it on better than it was to the next generation.
Toward this goal, NuWay Cooperative promotes SUSTAIN™, which combines leading, highly effective and field-tested tools, technologies and practices to help growers improve nutrient use efficiency, soil health and productivity, all the while preserving the environment. SUSTAIN operates under the already established 4R Nutrient Stewardship framework that promotes using the right fertilizer source at the right rate and applied at the right time in the right place.
To aid its customers who embrace SUSTAIN, NuWay Cooperative has implemented several new application methods and techniques, including 360 Y-Drop, 360 Undercover and adapt-N.
