SUPPLIER Greenvale AP Ltd has partnered with Trinity AgTech to roll out Trinity’s natural capital navigator, Sandy, to farms across the country.

Technical Director at Greenvale, Joann Reid, said the business is looking to update its environmental strategy by identifying areas for carbon reduction before setting new targets.

Joann said: “The nature of growing potatoes currently involves relatively high carbon outputs. But, gathering rigorous analytics through Sandy will allow us to set ambitious, yet achievable goals to credibly reduce our carbon outputs, and convey them with integrity.”
