Mixing crops with livestock could make climate-adaptation cheaper — Última modificación 30/03/2016 08:38
On a global scale, mixing crops with livestock-production systems can substantially reduce climate-adaptation costs, and slow down deforestation by lowering agricultural land requirements. That's according to a team from Austria and Germany, who says that livestock production – the world's largest user of land and biomass – is an important risk-management strategy for vulnerable communities, but its adaptation options are still under-examined.

You’ve heard of managing your carbon footprint. But how about your nitrogen footprint? Emissions of reactive nitrogen into the environment have increased more than 10-fold over the past 150 years, contribute to deaths from air pollution and water pollution, and have countless other impacts including acid rain and degradation of ecosystems such as the Great Barrier Reef.

One crop, two ways, multiple benefits — Última modificación 17/02/2016 08:48
Nitrogen fixation is one of the best examples of cooperation in nature. Soil microbes – naturally occurring bacteria in the soil – work with plants to pull nitrogen from the air. They turn the nitrogen into a form the plant is able to use. In return, the plant lets the microbes eat some of the sugars it makes.
