Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture and the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol have formalized a partnership between the two organizations to document and accelerate sustainable outcomes for U.S. cotton production.

 

The new partnership combines two of the industry’s leading sustainability assessment frameworks, strengthening the ability of cotton growers and the value chain to drive continuous improvement.

 

“Field to Market is pleased to join forces with the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol to enable the industry to meet its sustainability goals and credibly communicate results,” said Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. “Through this collaboration, Field to Market is committed to scaling access to our sustainability tools and analytics and enabling growers and the broader cotton value chain to measure environmental outcomes while identifying opportunities for improvement.”

 

In a memorandum of understanding signed this week, Field to Market and the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol have committed to:

 

Scale grower access to sustainability measurement by enabling farmers enrolled in the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol to utilize metrics from Field to Market’s Field print-Platform, allowing growers to analyse the connection between agronomic practices and sustainability outcomes

Track U.S. cotton’s sustainability journey through continued publication of Field to Market’s National Indicators Report, which will communicate progress against the industry’s established environmental targets

 

Foster an increased level of collaboration by participating in each other’s meetings and work sessions.
