Ceres Solutions: Good Stewardship is Good Business

How can ag retailers incorporate cover crops into their business model? Ceres Solutions, a farmer-owned cooperative based in Crawfordsville, Indiana, finds it a natural fit, since it requires no extra investment and makes more effective use of their existing facilities, services, and human resources. After an early period of trial and error, the Ceres team says its cover crop operations are now a success. Their advice to other ag retailers: commit to training the team, actively market your cover crop offerings, combine resources to help farmers make informed decisions, and build strong partnerships with the local Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDS) and the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
