Focused on reducing the greenhouse gas intensity and improving the overall production efficiency of cropland systems.
The Group will work together to find ways to limit the losses to the atmosphere of valuable carbon and nitrogen from crops and soils, and to transfer that knowledge and associated technologies to croplands farmers, land managers and policy makers around the world.
The vision of the Croplands Research Group is:
- Widely available decision-support tools that enable reduced greenhouse emissions intensity from climate-resilient croplands, producing sustained or increased yields
- Croplands that have greater soil carbon sequestration

We welcome the efforts of other member countries and partners.
