General Mills, Syngenta and Agspring Southern Idaho Project

General Mills and Syngenta are working with producers in Southeast Idaho to establish a credible baseline utilizing the Field to Market® environmental performance indicators as well as documenting improvements across the wheat rotation since 2010. Our mission is to advance profitable and sustainable farming practices that will help to enhance natural resource management. Growers, the agribusiness community and the value chain can see first-hand through this program how sustainable agriculture, conservation solutions and science-based metrics can work together to feed a changing world. The program aims to build a shared understanding of sustainability as well as educate and equip growers with the knowledge, skills and expertise to meet future global demands.
