ADM (Chicago) is expanding its regenerative agriculture program, trademarked re:generations, in North America. In 2023, the program will expand to cover 2 million acres across 18 U.S. states and three provinces in Canada; by 2025, it aims to cover 4 million acres globally. The program began in 2022 by enrolling more than 1 million acres.

The company says its program helps North American producers earn additional income while at the same time protecting soil health and the environment. “With a value chain that stretches from more than 200,000 producers to downstream customers spanning food, feed, fuel, industrial, and consumer products, ADM has an unparalleled ability to scale regenerative agriculture practices around the globe,” said Paul Scheetz, AMD’s director of Climate Smart Origination, in a press release. “We’re proud of our groundbreaking work to support regenerative agriculture efforts, which was recognized with a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture through which we’ll direct more funding directly to producers.”

Growers participating in the re:generations program gain financial incentives and technical support for implementing regenerative agriculture practices, including cover cropping, improved nutrient management, and conservation tillage. Producers can receive payments ranging up to $25 an acre per year, the firm says. For information on how to enroll, visit https://admadvantage.com/regen/.
