Farmers know that their operations and the world’s natural resources can all thrive within the same living ecosystem.  And more than ever, farmers are assessing cropping practices and operational processes that minimize impact on the environment while improving farm profitability.  FS Member Companies, along with their cooperative supplier, GROWMARK, named the 2018 Enduring Farm awards to acknowledge those farmers who have adopted best management practices that optimize nutrient utilization, leading to long-term soil and water quality while enhancing ROI. 

  • To be considered for the Enduring Farm award, FS companies nominate farmer-customers who use certain sustainable best management practices on their farms. Growers that earn a combined score of 150 points or greater for nutrient management activities are designated an Enduring Farms. 

Twenty-six Enduring Farms were recently named for implementing nutrient management practices during the 2017 growing season, as well as their commitment to preserving and improving their land and natural resources for future generations.  All Enduring Farms will be given two N-WATCH™ sites, utilizing three samples at the sites to measure results of a MiField™ Applied Research trial on nutrient management.  

Congratulations 2018 Enduring Farms


Farm enterprises that employed these practices are recognized for their commitment to protecting and preserving their land and natural resources through sustainable nutrient management.

Living. Lasting. Enduring.
