Farmland Partners Joins Agriculture Sustainability Organization

Farmland Partners Inc. (NYSE: FPI) (the “Company” or “FPI”) today announced that it has joined Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture™ as an associate member.

Field to Market’s more than 165 members – spanning the agricultural supply chain including farmer organizations, agribusinesses, brands and retailers, research institutions, and conservation organizations – work together to foster continuous improvement and increased transparency in the sustainability of commodity crop production. FPI is the first real estate investment trust (REIT) to join the organization and represents one of the association’s largest landowners.

“We believe that farmers are tremendous stewards of the land, maximizing food production for a growing world population while decreasing its environmental impact,” said FPI President Luca Fabbri. “Agriculture will continue to make advancements on the sustainability front, and it will be important to arm farmers with the tools and resources they need to voluntarily implement the practices that make the most sense for their operations. Field to Market agrees and plays an important role in farm sustainability.”

Fabbri noted that FPI’s tenants are already embracing the latest agronomic techniques, technologies, and conservation practices to drive efficiency and preserve the land they farm. According to a tenant survey released by the Company in April, 97% of respondents said that they invest in soil health, 94% practice conservation tillage, 87% use variable rate application technology to apply crop inputs, and 51% participate in federal conservation programs.

The survey also found high adoption rates for other environmental strategies, such as grassed waterways or buffer strips to slow runoff and trap soil sediment, planting cover crops, and the use of diesel exhaust fluid to reduce emissions from farm equipment.

“We are excited to welcome Farmland Partners to our membership and look forward to working closely with them as we continue to focus on defining, measuring, and advancing the sustainability of America’s food, feed, fiber, and fuel production,” said Field to Market President Scott Herndon.
