Over a year ago, I sat down with my fellow producers, AGree Co-Chair Jim Moseley and Advisory Committee Member Fred Yoder, to develop a proposal to help answer a critical question for the future of food and agriculture: how could we align the long-term productivity and profitability of our operations with environmental outcomes- soil health, water quality and quantity, and wildlife habitat? We agreed our approach should be farmer- and rancher-led, watershed-based, and supported by a broad range of partners in the public and private sector.
