Groups Detail Plans for Northern Prairie Grasslands and a New Cotton Protocol

Cargill just last week also announced the company wants to expand “regenerative agriculture practices” on 10 million acres across North America over the next decade. The company’s plan will focus on the major row crops: corn, wheat, canola, soybeans and other staple crops. Cargill stated it will work with a variety of stakeholders regarding technical and agronomic resources for farmers. Cargill will also work with farmers to find “new market-based solutions to incentivize outcomes that reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and improve and protect water quality, like the Soil and Water Outcomes Fund, of which Cargill is a founding member.”

The project is also tied to reducing emissions throughout Cargill’s supply chain by 30% per ton of product by 2030.

The Northern Spy: highs and lows of technology

By Rick Sutcliffe

Apple and Tesla last week split their stock, the former by four-to-one and the latter by five-to-one. Since splits make the price of a single stock lower, such actions tend to attract more retail investors and this pushes the price up further. 

In the case of Apple, this is merely the latest in a long line of such splits, now amounting to a 224:1 total from the beginning. Looking back on the initial IPO in 1980, this is equivalent to about a $.40 initial cost per share.
