When Nutrien Ag Solutions rolled out its Carbon Pilot Project last year, we knew that getting the idea from plan to execution was going to take a concerted effort by all our stakeholders—our sustainability team, our leadership and our growers especially. So at Commodity Classic this year, we brought these stakeholders together for the Nutrien Ag Solutions Carbon Summit to find out how it went—what worked, and how can we build on the success of this program as we continue to scale up? So in this episode, we parse the feedback we received: What did they like? What did they dislike? What would an ideal carbon program look like? What value do they see in other sustainability practices beyond carbon? And what are their long term goals for their growing operations? Unpacking this feedback with us is Christine Chitwood, Northern High Plains Division Research and Sustainability Manager for Nutrien Ag Solutions, who will share her unique insights as well.
