Enrollment Page for the Conservation Validation Network (CVN)

CTIC is partnering with a number of other organizations on the creation of the Conservation Validation Network (CVN), which we envision as a valuable set of anonymized ground-truthing data available to support advances in remote sensing methodologies being used to track adoption of regenerative conservation practices like reduced tillage and winter cover crops. This will ultimately result in higher accuracy of those methods, streamlined systems for documenting participation in sustainability or conservation programs, and higher stimulus payments for growers.

With much appreciation for seed funding made available by TNC Indiana and Corteva, CTIC is now leading a CVN Indiana Pilot, under which the CVN database was designed. We are now seeking Indiana growers who are potentially interested in participating in the Pilot. Volunteers will be taken on a “first-come, first-serve” basis and will be compensated for their participation. In order to express your interest in participating in the pilot, please fill out the form below. For any questions about the CVN program, please contact Dave Gustafson (gustafson@ctic.org).
