Background

Global agriculture is challenged by a combination of climate change, biodiversity loss, and the growing demand for food, feed, fibre and energy1 required to meet the needs of a population currently estimated at 7.4 billion and growing at a rate of 1.13% per year on static natural resources. Conventional agriculture has been appreciated for increasing yields which is necessary to feed a growing population, though this increase has come at a high cost to the environment which in turn threatens the sustainability of these gains. Conventional agriculture is a major driver of environmental degradation and climate change, contributing between 19% and 29% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Details
