Our section addresses the challenge of developing environmentally sustainable agricultural systems to produce food for a world population that is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050. We provide expertise to mitigate the impact of climate change and to develop the potential of sustainable biofuel crops. Our work on nutrient and carbon fluxes in ecosystems helps increase nutrient use efficiency, improve soil health and solve greenhouse-gas issues. We promote productive and sustainable land use practices on regional, national, and international scales. Learn more
