Carbon emissions contribute to a changing climate, but modern farming technology strives to help reduce these emissions. Discover how emerging innovations like satellites are helping farmers to protect our planet.

This means a fixed percentage of every field is planted without the Bt biotech trait, to ensure some targeted insect pests survive, thus slowing the rate at which resistance to Bt occurs in those pests.
