Climate change is rapidly accelerating and straining the natural resources that our food system — and all of life — depend on. Agriculture is a major driver of greenhouse gas emissions and a leading user of water, but it also has tremendous potential to drive high-impact climate solutions.
Improving soil health on agricultural land is a linchpin of MBOLD’s approach because it benefits farmers, protects water and provides robust climate solutions.
MBOLD is working to make Minnesota a global leader in soil health by developing scalable agronomic, market and engagement systems that enable farmers to adopt soil health principles profitably.
Working hand-in-hand with partners across the value chain, we are accelerating adoption of practices that build and regenerate healthy soils, sequester carbon, improve water quality and support the well-being of farmers and ranchers by diversifying farm incomes.
MBOLD is piloting on-the-ground efforts to help farmers adopt soil health principles like reducing soil disturbance, keeping the soil covered with living plants throughout the year, maximizing plant diversity and integrating crop and livestock systems. To make that possible, we are also committed to crafting strategies that acknowledge, manage and reduce the risks farmers face as they transition.
We are pioneering new ways to recycle flexible films and fight the environmental impact of plastic waste.Learn more
