Climate change has increased extreme weather events like flood and drought, while population growth and development have caused habitat loss and fragmentation, and both of these climate and land...

There is a growing body of science that shows organic farming is more profitable than conventional. While this is largely attributed to higher premiums paid for the organic brand, a recent study...

A study published in Soil Science Society of America Journal shows that organic farming  emits fewer greenhouse gases and has lower global warming potential than conventional farming. The study...

A recent study from Geoderma shows that over time, organic yields can match and even exceed those of conventional when built up soil health and biodiversity lead to better crop production. This...

The prevalence of synthetic nitrogen-fertilizer use and its negative impacts on the environment are critical considerations in conversations about the future of sustainable and regenerative...

Soil health hinges on robust communities of soil bacteria and insects. However, a recent science review published in Frontiers in Environmental Science shows that pesticides sprayed both above and...

Successful rural development hinges on both the profitability and the environmental sustainability of cropping systems. This is especially true in regions like the tropics where the success of...

As the demand for chocolate has grown, so has the intensification of cacao production, which has significantly driven deforestation in tropical regions. Shade...

Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is an important greenhouse gas that is often overshadowed by the focus on Carbon Dioxide (CO2), but increasing concentrations of nitrous oxide over the past two centuries have...
