Amanda Raster, Program Manager, U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance

In the grand challenge of nourishing a growing population but also nurturing our land and soils for generations to come, agriculture has a unique opportunity — our ability to spur innovation providing climate-smart solutions and vital ecosystem services will shape the food systems of the future. With support from across agricultural supply chains, farmers and ranchers could have the opportunity to reduce agriculture greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, and through harnessing further innovation, the sector’s emissions could become net-negative, up to 147%. Find out how farmers and ranchers are on a path to become the solution for sustainability and climate through soil carbon sequestration, water quality and biodiversity. And learn how investment opportunities through agriculture ecosystem services co-benefit our society and farmers’ economic sustainability.
