We devise innovative ways to address these problems, and offer a wide range of services to enable farmers, agri-food businesses and governments to adopt climate-smart agriculture.
Supporting early adopters
Transitioning to climate-smart agriculture (CSA) involves farmers, agri-food business, governments and consumers. Wageningen Environmental Research supports early adopters of technological innovations who are looking to make their farming businesses climate resilient and energy neutral. One example is vertical farming, which not only reduces the amount of land space needed, but enables year-round cultivation to take place.
