New Publication: Drivers of variability in greenhouse gas footprints of crop production

Identifying drivers of farm-level greenhouse gas (GHG) footprints of crop production can reveal opportunities to improve farming practices and enable more targeted GHG mitigation strategies. Although many studies evaluated the GHG footprints of crop production, differences between and within crops have not been systematically evaluated for a large number of farms so far. Here, we evaluated possible sources of variability in GHG footprints (in terms of kg CO2-eq/kg crop produced) of 26 crops, grown in compliance with Unilever’s Sustainable Agriculture Code, using data from 4565 farms in 36 countries from 2013 through 2016.
