Climate Change

Pesticides & climate change: A vicious cycle (PANNA,10 November 2022)   with link to the executive summary in English, Spanish and French.   New report indicating that pesticides contribute significantly to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while, at the same time, climate change is expected to increase pesticide applications. It’s a vicious cycle. Real solutions: Despite these findings, the reduction of synthetic pesticide use has been omitted from climate change solutions. Instead, synthetic pesticide use has been presented as a climate change mitigation strategy by industrial agriculture interests.    The real solution addresses all sides of this vicious cycle: agroecology! The adoption of alternative agricultural systems minimizes or eliminates synthetic fertilizer and pesticide use while increasing the resilience of our farming systems to better withstand climate change impacts.
