Rescue more farmland

Already, some 40% of existing farmland is seriously degraded, and an area large enough to feed Europe is too depleted to produce food. In fact, we lose a soccer field of farmland every second to desertification, urbanization and degradation1.

Practices that conserve soil are essential. We help farmers increase soil fertility and improve land productivity in sustainable ways. This can include appropriate use of fertilizers, planting different types of crops each season, and using techniques to avoid unnecessary plowing.
