When can we expect more information on the FBN/Unilever/Tyson Land Stewardship program?

It was briefly mentioned at the F2F conference that FBN had partnered with Unilever and Tyson to implement a regenerative ag program to reward farmers for their practices. Link to announcement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDFteQ_y9dQ&t=45m5s

-When is this expected to begin?

-How can we apply for this program?

-How will farmers be compensated? (direct payments? market premiums? discounted seed and inputs?)

Thanks for the question *******! Due to overwhelming initial demand, all of our programs are currently full but we expect to expand current partnerships and announce new ones in the next few months.

For now, any member who is interested in being notified when we have more space available should "follow" this thread, or simply reply below and we'll add a comment when we have more openings.

Stay tuned!
