WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Sustainable Environmental Consultants (SEC) is announcing its collaboration with FluroSat and TerrAvion in an effort to support scale of agricultural conservation.
Powered by the EcoPractices® platform, SEC provides sustainability risk management services such as third-party verification and quantification for the consumer-packaged goods and food supply chain sectors. To drive environmental performance quantification and verification of sustainable practices, SEC closely monitors data points, such as crop type, yield estimates, tillage practices, and presence as well as percent take of cover crops.
To support scale and best-in-class value-added outcomes for grower participants, SEC partnered with FluroSat and TerrAvion to develop these proof of concept tools to illustrate scaling capability in generating sustainable practice metrics. The partnership leverages the insights provided by TerrAvion high-resolution imagery and FluroSat’s market leading FluroSense analytics engine.
A recent case study provided a proof of concept, highlighting the partnerships ability to identify management practices, which will enable SEC to support a larger number of growers to access financial incentives from value-added outcomes of their crop management practices.
