Land Manager Objectives

The Peoples Company land management approach provides an intense focus on using information, analysis, production strategies, and advancing technology to increase production on the most fertile acres while allowing for conservation of the more sensitive parts of a farm. Peoples Company Land Managers target four areas of a farm to achieve desired outcomes:

Conservation

Peoples Company’s proprietary conservation lease amendment 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.

Fertility

The amount, timing, and placement of commercial fertilizers is critical to water quality and soil fertility. Peoples Company land managers compare crop removal (yields), and crop nutrients applied by the operator as well as conduct regular interval soil tests to measure progress towards a goal of balanced soil fertility.

Drainage

Managing surface water with traditional conservation practices, such as grass waterways and permanent seeding, can reduce erosion. Additional drainage tile may be required to manage excess water below the surface to increase a farm’s productivity.

Yields

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

Industry-Leading Outcomes

Peoples Company has developed an industry-leading, proprietary land management website and software that captures a documented history of a farm’s actual production, fertility, soil health, conservation practices, tiling, capital improvements, and financial performance. This information is continually analyzed to improve yield, increase income, and maximize appreciation. With the right balance and tailored approach, landowners achieve their objective of superior financial returns in a socially responsible manner.
