More than 70 percent of U.S. producers are enaging in at least one sustainable practices, according to a survey conducted on behalf of New York-based Rabobank.


The most significant steps were using direct seeding (64 percent), minimizing use of chemicals (42 percent), crop rotation or diversification (39 percent) and reduced energy inputs (39 percent).


The questions were part of Rabobank's much broader Spring 2010 U.S. Farm and Ranch Survey.
