Environmental Initiative and its partners have published a study on the return of investment of conservation practices. AgCentric Executive Director Keith Olander says the study is based on ten Minnesota farms. “We look at their engagement in environmental practices, measure soil loss and different impacts on the environment as it relates to the economics.” This study is unique in its conservation analyzations. “I get kind of excited about this kind of study, because it’s the first time we see the farm business management economics directly compared to greenhouse gas, carbon loss, or soil erosion.”
