Sustainability

IMG_1987

As stewards of our land for over 125 years,

it is our goal to help future generations understand the importance of agricultural and environmental responsibility, just as our ancestors have done for us. Therefore, W.D. Henry & Sons, Inc. uses sustainability practices such as:

  • Planting cover crops to improve soil organic matter and prevent erosion
  • Using plastic mulches and drip irrigation to reduce water use and evaporation
  • Using GPS and precision farming equipment to place fertilizers exactly where our plants need them, thus reducing nutrient leaching into our water systems
  • Implementing new ways to reduce the amount of pesticides used on our crops
