Cargill joins regenerative agriculture movement, sets goal for 10 million acres

Regenerative agriculture has been gaining popularity in pockets of farming over the last several years, but now Cargill Inc., the world’s largest agribusiness, is pushing the phenomenon. The Minnetonka-based company on Wednesday said it will help convert 10 million acres of row crop farmland in North America over a decade to regenerative practices, which are designed to improve soil biodiversity and reduce erosion and runoff.
