Cattle don’t just warm the planet with methane – their urine creates greenhouse gases as well. Healthier pastures can reduce the impact. http://ow.ly/ZNLj30nuKo7 #ClimateChange

El poder que tiene la orina del ganado para calentar el planeta se puede restringir con la restauración de tierras. http://ow.ly/7b9j30nuUZY Conozca el estudio del CIAT y sus socios que demuestra que estas emisiones de N2O se pueden refrenar significativamente mediante pasturas saludables para la producción pecuaria.

When cow urine falls on degraded land, it releases far more nitrous oxide – a potent greenhouse gas – than when absorbed by healthy pasture. The findings show additional benefits of landscape restoration and conservation.

The severity of #soil degradation and the associated loss of #productivity have worsened over the years. Time to give GMCCs a second chance? https://bit.ly/2T5xjBQ 💚 #soilfertility #knowledge #cropprotection #forages #sustainability

What goes around comes around! Green manure cover crops (GMCCs) have some history. The idea to grow plants that protect the soil and improve its fertility dates back some two to three decades at least, if not centuries. Read more: http://ow.ly/tEQo30n4x1c http://ow.ly/i/KfN7I
