A Bio-Based Solution to Agricultural Challenges

A rising global population and shrinking arable land are increasing pressure on improving agricultural output and achieving “more from less”. Add in increasingly extreme climatic events and a tightening regulatory landscape, and the magnitude of the problem becomes quite clear.


ADM’s diverse portfolio of bio-based ingredients can play a pivotal role in helping the industry rise to these challenges. With global pressure mounting against the use of pesticides and biocides, using more natural and plant-based ingredients are an effective alternative. These components deliver the same functional benefits while helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the agriculture industry.
