Nutrien supports a pilot program designed to implement market-based conservation practices on farms in the Midwest. The program provides technical and direct financial assistance to help farmers adopt farm-smart conservation practices, improve soil health, reduce greenhouse gases, and improve wildlife habitat.
In collaboration with The Sustainability Consortium, Nutrien supports a NFWF pilot program established in 2021 that is designed to implement market-based conservation practices on farms in Iowa. The pilot program will catalyze the adoption of conservation practices and help farmers gain access to market-based programs that compensate them for practices that provide carbon sequestration and ecosystem services benefits. Through a targeted approach including outreach, education, technical assistance, and economic incentives, the pilot program supports the implementation of conservation practices by farmers in Iowa.
