"However, it has now become an opportunity platform for the Ag Industry to tell its story – credibly and without 'green washing,' By measuring and validating our continuous improvements in a transparent manner, businesses have the opportunity to share with consumers how we grow their food and strive to be more resourceful with what we have.”
