Cargill Makes Regenerative Ag a Priority, Targets 10M Acres by 2030

Cargill is joining General Mills and a growing list of global companies in driving the expansion and adoption of regenerative agriculture as a means to mitigate the negative effects of climate change and to improve profitability and resiliency for farmers.

On September 16 the company announced it was aiming to help farmers convert 10 million acres of farmland - primarily focused on row crops including corn, wheat, canola, and soybeans - as it strives to meet its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its global supply chain by 30 percent per tons of product by 2030.

On the ground, Cargill will work with partners and other stakeholders across its supply chain to provide technical and agronomic resources to farmers that support higher yields, profit goals, training, and data collecting for benchmarking. It also will connect farmers with cost-cutting options, and help develop new market-based solutions that will reduce emissions and improve water quality.

To achieve these goals, Cargill has established the Soil & Water Outcomes Fund, and is partnering with The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, The Nature Conservancy, McDonalds, Target, the Soil Health Institute, and Practical Farmers of Iowa.
