How can we feed a global population of 9 billion on a finite planet? 

From major U.S. agriculture sites to subsistence farming in developing nations, Gund scholars work to feed the planet while protecting the natural systems that agriculture requires.

Gund agricultural research includes climate-smart tools and techniques for farmers and policy-makers, climate impacts on key crops, tracking and reduction of GHGs and excess fertilizer minerals, declines of bees and other crop pollinators, reduction of pollution and water use, agroecology, GMO policy.

Our Sustainable Agriculture efforts relate closely with our work on climate solutions, resilient communities and health and well-being
