Resources Help Ag Retailers and Advisers with Sustainability Training

The Agricultural Retailers Association, the American Society of Agronomy, Environmental Defense Fund, and Field to Market have launched Sustainability Programming for Ag Retailers and CCAs (SPARC). SPARC’s resources help train agricultural retailers and certified crop advisers to aid producers in meeting supply-chain sustainability commitments. Six training modules available through the American Society of Agronomy’s online classroom introduce the concept of sustainability, explain how sustainability metrics are used, and explore the financial benefits of improved environmental performance and operational efficiency.
