The science tells us that glyphosate is safe to use as directed. Farmers use it because it enables them to use less herbicide and practice no-till farming, which is beneficial for soil health. Why is it still making headlines as a "toxin" in our food?
More CO2 in the atmosphere means stronger, healthier plants. Yes, it is true, carbon dioxide is the perfect fertilizer for all things green. It helps the food we grow withstand drought and increases the yield per acre. Will rising CO2 put our food at risk?
Glyphosate is the most widely used weed killer in the world. Between a recent jury award to a groundskeeper who regularly used Roundup and headlines claiming glyphosate residues in our food, what is going on?
As they face the challenges of pests and diseases or regulatory pressure to use less water and less fertilizer, farmers are turning to companies who can provide microbial solutions to help them achieve crop health and environmental sustainability.
What is sustainability? How do non-government organizations (NGOs), corporations, governments, farmers, and consumers address sustainability? And how does this affect you, your food, and the environment?
With the advancement of drone and satellite technology, “precision farming” is taking on a whole new dimension. These technologies help farmers monitor their crops, track animal health, protect the environment, and save resources, like money and time.
