In looking at the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the food on your table, much of those emissions are a result of activities on the farm. Given the large number of farmers in the US and worldwide, it is a significant task to change farming practices to more sustainable methods. These more sustainable methods may look more expensive than their current practices to a farmer who is seeing low prices for his current crop. It will take innovation and good science to align farmers, food processors, brand owners and consumers to improve the sustainability as we go from "Farm to Fork".
