Pocketing a decent return and protecting the environment are not mutually exclusive, said Bruce Kahn, portfolio manager for Sustainable Insight Capital Management. Kahn said risk adjusted returns are better for companies that make the environment and corporate governance high priorities. He added that investors need to understand farm systems and dynamics, not just select the company with the highest priced seeds or irrigation equipment. Furthermore, he advocated watching weather trends like El Nino when it comes to water investments. Finally, Kahn said that precision farming may be the standard in America, yet it is still new to the rest of the world.
