Progressive’s grower partners use only sustainable growing techniques to ensure generation after generation of healthy crops. The care of the soil is a year-round aﬀair involving the addition of compost, rotation of crops and growing of cover crops. These reduce erosion and add nutrients to the soil naturally. Great care is taken to conserve water and reduce evaporation with constant monitoring of irrigation. Precision farming techniques using Global Positioning Systems (GPS) further reduce the farm’s consumption of energy, water and other inputs. U.S. growers us fertilizer and pesticides sparingly to guarantee the wholesomeness of their crops.
