Extending our “green” reach beyond our own company, our growers are encouraged to actively pursue resource conservation efforts within their own operations. We also partner with other organizations to promote sustainable agriculture.
Almond growers embrace the zero-waste approach. Hulls are used for cattle feed, shells for livestock bedding and continuous improvement means further innovation is underway!
Peanuts are a water efficient, nitrogen fixing crop, meaning that they replenish soil with essential nitrogen that’s depleted by other crops. Less fertilizer is needed to grow peanuts, as well as the subsequent rotation crop, resulting in less greenhouse gas emissions.
JBSS is a founding sponsor of the American Peanut Council’s Sustainable U.S. Peanuts Initiative. This grower platform assists peanut farmers in documenting and measuring their environmental footprint, allowing farmers to share their sustainable farming practices, while also getting feedback about what additional practices could benefit them.
