PepsiCo and Archer Daniels Midland are partnering on regenerative agriculture projects that could reach 2 million acres of farmland by 2030, a meaningful step in helping each company achieve its carbon reduction goals.

The 7.5-year agreement will initially enroll corn, soy and wheat farmers in Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Nebraska. The growers will receive financial incentives, plus technical and agronomic support for using practices like cover crops, reducing tillage and engaging in responsible pesticide use. The companies said their efforts could eliminate 1.4 million metric tons of greenhouse gases.
