For many the discussion of Big Ag vs Small Ag, is a difficult one. The question often is based on Big Ag's impact on the environment. But what is the enviroment, often it includes topics such as our natural resources, the hungry of the world and many other topics. This week Stanford university released a peer reviewed study on "Greenhouse gas mitigation by agricultural intensification." This study is published in the "Proceedings on the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America." For many this science based approach is the highest standard of research, and yet heavy to read. Drover's magazine did an editorial review of the study "Stanford finds big benefits from Big Ag", which we encourage everyone to read if you are unwilling to read the actual study. But don't take the facts from the editorial, it is a cute and well written article, and the study is based on sound science and research.
This study might just mark the beginning of a true scientific discussion on Agriculture.
