The SHI says the partnership will allow expansion in research, education, and networking for a better food system through soil improvement.

General Mills, The Nature Conservancy, the Soil Health Institute, and the Soil Health Partnership have joined forces to support farm sustainability all through investing in soil. According to the press release, the effort aims to “pave the way,” both economically and sustainably, for farmers and the future of food.

 

As part of the mission, General Mills has pledged to a $2 million, three-year deal commitment with conservation groups to support resources for farmers, landowners, and supply chain leaders to better soil health practices, according to the Soil Health Institute.
