More Than Grain Contracts: 5 More Ways to Use

Discover new farmer-focused content in a variety of formats.

Let’s face it. No matter what season it is, your farm operation will always demand more from your day than there are hours to do it. Knowing the value of your time—and the tasks competing for it, we’ve designed to help you get the information you want…and back on your way.

When you think of the Advantage website, you might associate it primarily with ADM’s grain contracts. But providing details about those contracts is just one of the ways it serves producers. There’s a lot more to discover, and a few minutes is enough time to get acquainted with five popular features.

1. ADM re:generations™ Program

Explore ADM’s re:generations program and learn about how you can be paid for cover crops. While everyone can benefit from reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved water quality, soil health, and biodiversity, ADM now offers more immediate rewards to those who are helping make it a reality. The re:generations program provides financial and technical support to producers who begin or continue regenerative ag practices.

Available to everyone, the portal adds to producers’ self-serve options and can play an important role in keeping operation costs down. It takes only a few minutes to log in and start browsing a full range of products including starter fertilizer, fertilizer alternatives (such as a soil microbe biostimulant), sulfur, nitrogen, and other traditional macro- and micro-nutrients.
