PepsiCo and ADM today announced a 7.5-year agreement to expand regenerative agriculture across their shared North American supply chains. The partnership is expected to reach up to 2 million acres by 2030 and could eliminate 1.4 million metric tons of greenhouse gases.
The project will involve multi-year farmer-first regenerative agriculture initiatives, including cover crops, reduced tillage, nutrient management, diverse rotations, and responsible pesticide use. The companies will provide participants with technical and financial assistance, offering access to peer regenerative farming networks, hosting educational field days, and tracking results using trusted, third-party measurement systems.
The initial rollout will be with corn, soy, and wheat farmers across Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska.
