Agriculture is the world’s largest industry. It employs more than billion people and generates over $1.3 trillion in food annually. Pasture and cropland cover approximately half of the Earth’s farmable land and provide sources of food for a wide variety of plant.

When farms are managed sustainably, they can protect watersheds, improve health of the soil, and restore essential ecosystem services. Pollutions harm people and the planet.

Resource management must be sustainable. As the world’s population grows, farmland demand rises. Agriculture’s ties to the global economy, human societies, and biodiversity make it a key conservation frontier.
