In a new study, 70% of children said pigs and cows weren’t acceptable as food. This, the researchers say, represents an opportunity to establish lifelong habits that mitigate climate change.
A research team has demonstrated a technique to turn bioplastics into urea, cutting back on the emissions associated with making fertilizer
Targeting only 20% of global cropland, where excessive fertilizer application prevails, could achieve 65% of nitrous oxide mitigation targets
Their new discovery not only keeps damage-prone fruit out of the landfills, it also requires less energy-guzzling infrastructure for storage and cooling
A decade of research holds the answer to this longstanding farming conundrum.
The lowest-impact label went to farmed bivalves and seaweeds; but there were also some surprises—e.g., wild and farmed salmon have the same footprint
Researchers develop a method to make this crucial industrial ingredient 8.5 times faster than nature can — with potential consequences for food security and land savings
Using existing technology downscaled for cars, we could harvest millions of tons of CO2 emissions and waste water and reroute it to urban farms
The presence of wild peanut traits in modern crops has enabled farmers to cut back on fungicides and other chemical treatments, and even reduce fuel use and emissions.
Applied to different cultivars, this discovery has the potential to not only slash nitrate pollution, but also agricultural greenhouse gases
