Kellogg's Helps Arkansas Farmers Conserve Nine Billion Gallons of Water

Kellogg Company
Marvell farmer, Kotton Guest, had the irrigation timers installed on his farm in 2020.

A grant from the Kellogg Company is providing 30 irrigation timers to manage water useage on approximately 15,000 acres of rice fields in the Arkansas delta. The program is a partnership with theNature Conservancy in Arkansas and part of the food giant's effort to help a million farmers in the U.S. support sustainable agriculture by 2030.
