How do you measure stewardship?

Truterra Insights Engine to integrate sustainability metrics from Field to Market's updated Fieldprint Platform.

Field to Market's sustainability metrics will be available within the new Truterra Insights Engine from Land O'Lakes Sustain in mid-December. Land O'Lakes is the first partner that will integrate fully with the latest version of Field to Market's Fieldprint Platform released this month. 

"This collaboration integrates Field to Market's sustainability insights alongside the stewardship and agronomic analysis for which Land O'Lakes WinField United ag-retailer owners are known – helping farmers make decisions that benefit the air, soil, water and their business,” said Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. 

"The addition of Fieldprint Platform sustainability metrics to the Truterra Insights Engine is a key asset supporting the agricultural and food supply chain to utilize Truterra for data-driven insights," said Matt Carstens, senior vice president of Land O'Lakes Sustain. "This work enhances the ability for farmers and ag retailers to bolster their stewardship reporting across many commodities, crops and commitments – and it cements the Truterra Insights Engine as a go-to, farm-to-fork solution for food companies who turn to the Fieldprint Platform to track sustainability results achieved in the field." 

The common measurement framework offered by Field to Market will offer greater depth to the Truterra Insights Engine's ability to assist farmers in documenting their stewardship and exploring opportunities for continuous improvement. The integration of Field to Market's sustainability metrics provides commodity crop producers and the supply chain with a seamless solution for assessing sustainability performance as well as documenting and demonstrating stewardship at the field and landscape level.

Land O'Lakes and Field to Market have a history of working closely together to advance on-farm sustainability. Land O'Lakes is a longstanding member of the Alliance. The farmer-owned cooperative serves on both its Board of Directors and Standing Committees.
