The 200-acre facility underwent a year of record keeping and an independent audit before being receiving certification for environmentally friendly cultivation.

“Although this is still a work in progress, we are pleased that we have established a benchmark for this PanAmerican Seed facility and can continue to work to lessen our impact on the environment,” says Budd LaRue, general manager of the facility.

Based in Holland, MPS is a not-for-profit international certification organization that promotes sustainable horticulture production and social responsibility. The MPS system rates growers for their use of energy, water, recycling, fertilizers and chemicals.
