Advancing Sustainable Agriculture
Each year, drought and desertification destroy 12 million hectares of farmland. To help feed and clothe the world while preserving the land for future generations, we support programs that develop and advance local farming while encouraging sustainable practices.
Through ADM Cares last year, we helped nearly 150 thousand farmers in Africa, India and Malaysia, by cultivating almost 800,000 hectares of land. In particular, we support partnerships that educate smallholder farmers in developing countries about planting and harvesting best practices, along with soil conservation and water management.
