Corn, Soy & Other Row Crops

Row crops, like corn, wheat and soy, can be turned into a variety of inputs: food ingredients, biofuels, and animal feed – elements that are part of nearly every major retailer’s supply chain. Yet the production of these ingredients can also lead to water and air pollution – part of the reason why many companies list agriculture as one of their primary sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

Fortunately, many leading businesses are making commitments to reduce GHG emissions across the food chain. EDF is working to help these companies reach and exceed their climate targets, through innovative ag tech and sustainable agriculture practices such as nutrient and soil management, and to increase biodiversity, water quality, and farm resilience.
