Cargill will begin enrolling U.S. cotton growers in its Cargill RegenConnect regeneratively-sourced cotton program in July, rewarding growers for the positive soil health practices they are already using.

This new addition to the Cargill RegenConnect portfolio furthers Cargill’s role in giving farmers access to emerging market opportunities within sustainable, traceable supply chains, opening doors to Cargill’s downstream customers looking to achieve their sustainable sourcing goals.

“Brands, retailers and consumers are increasingly placing sustainability at the forefront of purchasing decisions, giving rise to increased market demand for regeneratively-grown cotton,” said William Barksdale, president of Cargill’s cotton business and chairman of the American Cotton Shippers Association.

“Cargill is committed to playing its role in advancing sustainable cotton production practices around the world,” he added. “Through the Cargill RegenConnect regeneratively-sourced cotton program, we are connecting market demand to the growers actively engaged in supporting environmental stewardship through regenerative agriculture practices.”

Program enrollment begins in July and ends September 15, 2022.

How to Enroll in the Cargill RegenConnect Regeneratively-Sourced Cotton Program

Cargill will offer one-year contracts to growers who have implemented cover crops and reduced-till or no-till practices since the Fall of 2021. Cotton growers can earn a premium for each pound of regeneratively-grown cotton contracted, produced, and delivered to Cargill.

Eligible states include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.

Cargill has partnered with Regrow to make it easy for farmers to securely enter data to verify their use of regenerative agriculture practices through the Regrow MRV platform. Verification will be supported through in-field data, remote sensing, and crop modeling.

Growers interested in participating in the program should contact their Cargill sales representative or visit online.
