Sustainability Programming for Ag Retailers and CCAs (SPARC) was recently launched by the Agricultural Retailers Association, the American Society of Agronomy, Environmental Defense Fund and Field to Market to provide farmer advisers with resources and training modules to help producers continuously improve agronomic and environmental outcomes. PARM contributed to SPARC’s training modules, recently launched on the American Society of Agronomy’s online classroom under Sustainability 101 (find here). The “Sustainability 101 for CCAs” and “Sustainability 101 for Ag Retailers” online modules explain what food companies mean when they ask for sustainable products, and the “Environmental Sustainability Metrics” module explains how progress toward industry sustainability goals for commodity crop production is measured and reported.
