Industry Leading Outcomes

Financial performance and environmental issues are linked on the farm. With the right balance and tailored approach, landowners achieve their objective of superior financial returns in a socially responsible manner.

Socially Responsible Land Management

Peoples Company’s management approach addresses soil health improvement through erosion control, drainage, balanced fertility, and extending living cover. We strive to manage each farm for appreciation and sustainability through socially responsible farming practices. Our commitment to sustainability focuses our work on what is best for each farm today as well as tomorrow.


Peoples Company’s proprietary farm lease addresses the impact of farming practices on soil erosion and water quality at an individual farm level, including tillage practices, crop rotation, permanent seeding (including CRP), cover crops, and the placement of commercial fertilizers.


Land Managers seek to work with the natural topography of each asset to reduce soil erosion and compaction. This is a combination of in-field and edge-of-field practices to increase water-holding capacity and filtering as water flows across a farm.


The amount, timing, and placement of commercial fertilizers is critical to water quality and soil fertility. Peoples Company Land Managers compare crop removal (yields), crop nutrients applied by the operator, and schedule regular soil tests to measure progress toward a goal of balanced soil fertility.


Peoples Company's strategy to merge soil conservation and adequate drainage with balanced soil fertility translates into a probability for increasing crop yields.
