Agriculture has significant effects on carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere, both directly through cultivation practices, and indirectly through the energy used to produce agricultural inputs, such as pesticides and fertilizer. Different techniques, such as low-till cultivation, multi-cropping, and low-input or organic practices help reduce the climate change impact of agriculture, and have additional ecological and financial benefits. Additionally, animal production is associated with significant greenhouse gas emissions. Different strategies exist that minimize these emissions, and the implementation of these strategies in some instances can serve as a basis for carbon offsets. Food production emissions are not only associated with farming practices, but also with the shipping, cooling, and packaging industries that form a crucial link between the farmer and the final consumer. Energy consumed at each of these stages represents a large proportion of the costs associated with getting produce from the field to the table. We are happy to help cooling and shipping facilities examine energy reductions that are possible with new technologies in cooling and building science.
