Cargill has announced that its regenerative agriculture program will expand to include farmers in Germany, Poland, Romania and France, writes ILM.



Cargill RegenConnect will also be expanding in the U.S. from 15 states to 24, adding North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas.

This program compensates farmers financially for adopting sustainable agriculture practices. Farmers enrolled in the program choose the practices that suit their work, including planting cover crops and implementing reduced or no-till farming.

Cargill then provides technical support and resources as well as connection with other companies around the world aiming to reduce their impact.

Eligible farmers in the participating European countries will be able to enrol from June 1-15, 2023, while eligible farmers in the U.S. can enrol from now until September 15.

In the EU, eligible hectares must have a primary crop of Cargill’s supply chain, such as rapeseed, wheat, corn, barley or sunflower.

Chantelle Donahue, North America Agriculture Supply Chain Vice President at Cargill, said: “Cargill RegenConnect’s success to date demonstrates how making sustainable, regenerative agriculture financially viable for farmers can help nature-positive production practices scale more quickly and become standard.

“It is one of the many ways we plan to meet our goal to reduce emissions in our supply chain and will impact every area of our business – from sourcing wheat and corn for our starches, and sweeteners to growing rapeseed oil for our salmon feed.”
