PCM PARTNER PROGRAM
Supporting Farmer Efforts Towards Conservation Best Practices
PCM has the support of more than 30 organizations which have a vested interest in improving the sustainability of commercial agriculture. These organizations include private, public, non-profit, charitable, and government organizations and range from those that serve and supply farmers to those that create and enforce local and national policies.
Firmly rooted in our origins as a farmer service program, we have built technology and analysis tools that support farmers’ desire to implement lasting precision conservation methods. By partnering with PCM, you can help farmers make the switch to regeneragive agriculture and access the data showing the measureable impact these practices have throughout the supply chain.

Program Partnership Benefit to PCM Farmers
Many farmers are interested in adopting new farming practices to reduce their environmental impact, but often the financial risks are too high.
