Kellogg Company and The Nature Conservancy Collaborate to Support U.S. Farmers.
Improved water quality, reduced soil erosion, better crop yields, lower carbon footprint – the reasons to equip farmers with the tools they need to adopt sustainable agriculture practices are clear.
Another reason: as the world's population continues to rise, the increased demand for food production places greater stress on farmland and the natural resources needed to crops more sustainably.
Kellogg and The Nature Conservancy are working to empower farmers with the resources they need to meet these increasing demands, while safeguarding their livelihoods and protecting our lands and waters. It's a win-win for people and nature.
Sustainability is at the heart of an effort between TNC and the Kellogg Company to incentivize conservation agriculture practices among corn, wheat and rice farmers in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions. We expect the 3-year project to impact approximately 25,000 acres of land in Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio, with the potential to indirectly improve up to 2 million acres over time. This work demonstrates how agriculture can contribute to improved environmental outcomes, safeguard communities and protect our lands and waters.
