Together We Can Feed the World!

AGCO Corporation launched the AGCO Agriculture Foundation (AAF) in 2018 with one goal in mind: ending hunger globally. 

In our five key focus areas, the foundation takes a holistic approach to Zero Hunger by addressing nutritional demands, quality agricultural education, community and rural development, ethical treatment of farm animals and social initiatives that advance our vision. 

As the world’s nutritional demands change, the AAF is committed to making an impact locally and globally. We are dedicated to elevating marginalized farming communities to ensure that no one is left behind. The AGCO Agriculture Foundation is a testament to AGCO’s support of all farmers feeding the world.
