Climate change and rising populations are placing higher demands and larger constraints on the world’s resources. This PowerPoint presents what these challenges mean for agriculture, and describes principles for soil and water conservation to confront these challenges, including forest riparian buffers, cover cropping, and agroforestry. Agriculture’s role in mitigating climate change is also explored, examining the effect of nitrogen fertilization on N2O global atmospheric pressure. A nitrogen index is established as a valuable tool for evaluating the impact of agricultural practices on emissions.
