On November 14, Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture announced the 2018 recipients of its Sustainability Leadership Awards. Two Research Park companies, Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) and Agrible along with General Mills, Inc. were awarded the 2018 Collaboration of the Year Award.
The three recipients were recognized for their efforts to aid farmers in the Southern Plains build soil health, conserve water, and extend the life of the Ogallala aquifer. ADM, Agrible, and General Mills are “helping farmers measure continuous improvement in soil health and water conservation,” says Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. With the future potential of prolonged drought, these partners are helping farmers improve the resiliency of their fields, conserve water, and improve their bottom line through conservation or no-till.
Field to Market has more than 140 members who represent all parts of the United States agricultural supply chain. Members employ more than 5 million people and represent combined revenues of over $1.5 trillion.
