Valagro, a leader in the development, production and marketing of biostimulant and advanced nutrient solutions for cash and row crops, announced that it has joined Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, a leading multi-stakeholder initiative working to unite the agricultural supply chain in defining, measuring and advancing the sustainability of food, feed, fiber and fuel production in the United States.
“Sustainable agriculture grounded on science is the core of our mission. Our new membership in Field to Market represents a tremendous opportunity to support American farmers in understanding how their management decisions can achieve higher productivity while reducing the environmental impact of their operation,” says Matteo Sclocchi, Head of North and Central America, Valagro. “We look forward to partnering with stakeholders through our participation in Field to Market to help us achieve this goal.” Valagro has invested and enlarged its operations in the key U.S. agriculture market, as demonstrated by the company’s recent investment to open a new plant in Orangeburg, South Carolina. The company plans to partner with farmers, experts, institutions and other stakeholders to expand its commitment and approach to innovation and sustainability in the U.S. arena.
As an active member in Field to Market, Valagro will work together with grower organizations, academia, conservation groups, public sector partners and leading companies to catalyze opportunities across the agricultural value chain for continuous improvements in environmental outcomes.
Field to Market engages in broad communication and collaboration with stakeholders to ensure a coordinated, outcomes-based approach to sustainable agriculture that is grounded in science. By providing useful measurement tools and resources, Field to Market helps growers and the supply chain track and promote continuous improvement at the field and landscape levels.
“We are pleased to welcome Valagro as a new member of the Alliance,” said Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. “We look forward to collaborating with them to support farmers and the value chain in delivering sustainable outcomes for agriculture.”
Representing all facets of the U.S. agricultural supply chain, Field to Market provides an unparalleled platform that helps the food and agricultural supply chain benchmark sustainability performance, catalyze continuous improvement and enable supply chain sustainability claims.
