General Mills & Syngenta Southern Minnesota Sugar Beet Project

General Mills has made a commitment to responsibly sourcing their key agricultural ingredients by 2020. General Mills and Syngetna are partnering together on a Minnesota project that will enable General Mills to credibly meet its goal and bring value to sugar beet producers. This program will create a platform that enables participating growers and value chain members to gain and share valuable insights about the impacts and benefits of their management decisions across several key resource issues and the bottom line. This project will engage producers around Renville, MN to establish a baseline and document improvements across the spring sugar beet rotation.
