Monsanto SPECIAL SERIES

Making Agriculture "Climate Smart"

In honor of the two-year anniversary of Monsanto’s commitment to make its operations carbon neutral by 2021, Monsanto presents a series on what it means to be “Climate Smart” in the world of agriculture. The series will cover the role of climate change in impacting food security, agriculture, weather patterns and society at large. 

There is a strong connection between climate smart agriculture practices, water quality/availability, biodiversity, food security and farming community livelihoods. Done right, climate smart farming can conserve and protect these important resources as well. 

Modern agriculture can be an important part of the climate change solution through practices that improve soil health so that it can store more carbon. These include conservation tillage, cover crops, digital tools and microbials, which can help farmers get better harvests while absorbing and storing more carbon.
