ADM announced its plans and progress in North America and other continents in its inaugural annual report on regenerative agriculture, published on November 29.

"We are increasing our efforts to improve sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint throughout the company's chain. This is made possible by supporting the global expansion of regenerative agriculture practices,” said Greg Morris, senior vice president and president, Ag Services & Oilseeds at ADM.

"Our business reaches hundreds of thousands of farmers and spans six continents, spanning food, feed, fuel, industrial and consumer products."

ADM defines regenerative agriculture as practices based on land management methods that are adapted both to local climate and soil conditions and to the specific crop.

The goal is to have 4 million acres in the company's regenerative agriculture program by 2025. By the beginning of November, the figure had reached almost 2 million hectares, leading officials to believe that the target had been successfully reached.

In Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), ADM works with wheat, canola and soybean growers in Poland and Serbia, as well as wheat, barley and canola growers in the UK.

In South America, ADM launched a two-year, 20,000-hectare pilot program involving soybean growers in different parts of Brazil. In Argentina, programs launched are aimed at peanut growers.

In India, the company works with over 25,500 soybean growers covering almost 90,000 acres. Efforts are focused on human rights and responsible labor policies, banning the use of genetically modified organisms and water management.

"Our research showed that almost two-thirds of consumers would be more interested in buying from companies involved in regenerative agriculture partnerships, and almost three-quarters say they are more likely to trust companies and brands that implement similar programs in agriculture,” Morris concluded.
