Oatly wants farmers to plant more oats. Here’s how it’s helping

Jesse Klein of GreenBiz writes on Oatly’s efforts to help farmers plant more oats.

The C3 Take
  • Around 45% of the crops grown in the United States are for biofuels and animal consumption.
  • Oatly, a leading oat milk producer, is partnering with farmers to help them incorporate oats and cover crops into their planting rotation of soy and wheat.
  • The company is helping to provide funding for farmers to begin growing oats and is guaranteeing that they will buy their crops after they are harvested.
  • Farmers and the private sector are leading the way to a more sustainable future.

“Oatly is supplying grant funding for the farmers to start growing oats and is promising to buy the oats after they are harvested. This guarantee helps offset the economic pressure to grow corn and soy, which sell for a higher value, up to two to three times as much per bushel compared to oats, according to Kunen.”
