Since 2009, ADM and Aliança da Terra, a not-for-profit sustainable farming group founded by farmers, have partnered to help soybean growers in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Bahia improve their yields on existing cropland and minimize the need to expand into ecologically sensitive regions.
Under the “Doing It Right” program (Produzindo Certo), soybean growers agree to allow Aliança da Terra technicians to visit their farms, map the property and analyze the operations. From there, the organization develops a social and environmental action plan for the farmer and recommends a technical training program to help him or her achieve the plan’s goals. After one year, Aliança da Terra returns to the farm to evaluate progress against the plan and determine next steps in consultation with the grower.
