Adopting best-in-class agricultural practices
The adoption of best-in-class agricultural practices, including precision agriculture and feed optimization, can help reduce farmer input costs, improve water quality and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions all over the world.
By pursuing best practices in areas such as manure management, enteric emissions, feed inputs, and other activities in animal agriculture along with fertilizer optimization in crop production, we estimate there is a potential to reduce 300 million metric tons (MMT) of GHG emissions by 2030; while at the same time reducing waste and improving yield.
We’ve assembled a collection of resources, tools, case studies and initiatives to help get you started on adopting sustainable agriculture practices:
