Illinois Corn Growers Project
Launched in late summer 2020, the Illinois Corn Growers Association, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), GROWMARK, and ESMC partnered on a pilot project in central Illinois. Farmers enrolled in the Precision Conservation Management (PCM) program will have an opportunity to participate in the ESMC pilot to further test protocols for carbon, net greenhouse gases, and water quality quantification and asset generation. The pilot is expected to include 10,000 acres in all. Additional details on the project can be found here.
