On February 27, 2019, the Dairy Sustainability Alliance® hosted a webinar with Newtrient. The webinar topic was Ecosystem Services Markets (ESMs) and shared how dairy can benefit from market-based solutions.
The current economics of dairy farming make it challenging to adopt manure management technologies that could provide environmental benefits.Through this approach, farms of all sizes can be incentivized to voluntarily adopt new technologies and practices beyond what they’re already doing, small manufacturers and food companies remain in operation and municipalities don’t pass along multi-million dollar wastewater treatment plant upgrade costs to taxpayers.
Yesterday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a joint letter to state environmental and agricultural agencies actively voicing support for collaborative, market-based approaches to reduce nutrient overloading and improve waterways.
Each year, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy gathers experts from academic, government and non-government organizations as members of the Dairy Sustainability Alliance to measure, improve and communicate dairy's role in a sustainable food system. The Forum also recognizes dairy farms, businesses and partnerships whose practices are leading the way in providing consumers with nutritious dairy products, while making the earth economically, environmental and socially better - now and for years to come.
Noble Research Institute recently announced its plans to create an ecosystem services market-based platform driven by soil health, water quality improvement and water quantity management. The program aims to incentivize farmers and ranchers to improve soil health on working agriculture lands through a market-based approach.
