Agriculture and the Circular Economy

brought to you by: E4C logo

Changing climates force farmers to adapt to new patterns of precipitation, new temperatures, new pests and other new problems. Adaptation for many farmers will mean doing more with less. Changing the way we view waste, and what we do with it, can make farms more financially sustainable and resilient to change. Farmers can take part in the circular economy by turning waste into tools, fertilizer, fuel and electricity.
