Food and beverage maker PepsiCo Inc. and agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland Co. are partnering to implement carbon-friendly agricultural practices on two million acres of American farmland by 2030, the companies said Wednesday. 

The effort could eliminate 1.4 million metric tons of greenhouse gases, the companies said, helping both reach their carbon reduction goals.
