Sustainability has been a pivotal component of agricultural production, but an increasing focus on climate has necessitated that parties across the sector develop and further adopt climate-smart practices. As an industry, agriculture makes up a sizeable contribution towards the global greenhouse gas footprint. Agricultural climate-smart solutions can reduce these greenhouse gas emissions while also improving crop productivity.
Therefore, it’s exciting to announce that BiOWiSH Technologies has added a new business segment to drive a sustainability program, which Matt Rellaford will lead as Director of Sustainability Policy. This new venture will further enhance the services offered to the end-user of BiOWiSH® Enhanced Fertilizer. Investment into this new sustainability department focuses on advancing solutions both internally and with external partners.
As a conservation agronomist, Rellaford is passionate about helping growers, ag-retailers, and fertilizer manufacturers improve their operations and the environment. With a Master’s Degree in Plant Science from North Dakota State University, Rellaford has a background leading enteric methane projects, nitrogen standards and training, conservation, and precision agriculture. As Director of Sustainability Policy at BiOWiSH, Rellaford will be responsible for setting the company’s sustainability strategy with an emphasis on climate smart technologies and practices.
