Here at Truesdell Family Farm we recognize the vital role of both environmental sustainability and economic sustainability have on the long term success of a farm. Therefore, we are committed to taking a long-term, science based approach to crop farming. Here are just a few ways we are working to achieve these goals and their benefits:

  • Routine soil sampling

    measuring soil health and building input application prescriptions

  • Prescription based input applications

    applying inputs when and where they are needed most and avoiding over application in other areas

  • Split application nitrogen program

    applying Nitrogen when and where the plant needs it while reducing nitrogen leaching

  • Soil drainage and waterway management

    reduced erosion and increased yields

  • GPS guided equipment

    Reduces input overlap and increases fuel efficiency

  • Conservation tillage

    reduced soil erosion and improved organic matter
