Veripath Farmland Funds is pleased to announce it has partnered with A&L Canada Laboratories and Deveron to assist in it’s soil management program. Veripath’s soil management program is designed to assist in protecting the Fund’s assets and at the same time provide valuable insight to farmers in helping increase productivity while enhancing the value of the land.
“We’re excited to work with A&L Canada Laboratories and Deveron as part of our UNPRI and ESG farmland sustainability program.” stated management at Veripath Farmland Partners.
Veripath Farmland Partners operates on the conviction that growing worldwide demand for agricultural products in the form of “food, feed, and fuel” makes farmland an interesting long-term investment. Canadian farmland covers an area exceeding 160 million acres, with an estimated total capitalization of roughly $500 billion.
Farmland also offers interesting inflation and even stagflation hedging features that can complement traditional stock/bond portfolio construction tools. Compared with physical gold holdings, when properly managed, farmland’s inflation hedging qualities come with a positive rather than negative cost of carry in the form of generating cash rents.
Veripath Farmland LP, is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba only; and Veripath Farmland (UR) LP, is structured to own farmland across the rest of the country. By using a split vehicles approach, Veripath is able to simplify and streamline management as it navigates the various provincial regulatory regimes.
The funds are also configured in an open-ended, evergreen structure, rather than the traditional fixed-term approach. The result is that Veripath allows shorter- and longer-duration holdings to exist side-by-side, thus enabling investors to choose the holding period that best fits their portfolio requirements.
