An average of 10% of the US carbon emissions results from agriculture. That’s why Cargill Inc. is promoting regenerative agriculture and paying farmers to adopt carbon-friendly growing methods that increase soil fertility. Cargill’s program aims to farm through regenerative agricultural methods across 10 million acres of North American land by 2030. Up till now, 6 states have been enrolled in this program; Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana, Arkansas, Illinois, and Missouri. The strategy is to grow cover crops after the principal crops are planted to decrease the erosion percentage.
