Ecological Farming and Food campaign

Greenpeace is campaigning for agriculture that is good for the planet and people. Healthy food grown with the environment — not against it. Farming that helps cope with climate change. Get involved.

Farmers planting diverse crops to increase their yield.

 

Quick facts about agriculture:

  • Ten corporations control nearly 70 percent of the world's seed market. This corporate control of agriculture means farmers have less choice.
  • Genetic Engineering does not feed the world. 99.5 percent of farmers around the world do not grow Genetically Engineered crops.
  • Industrial polluting agriculture uses synthetic fertilizers and toxic chemicals which pollute our water and soils – the very things we need in order to provide healthy food now and in the future.
  • Excessive use of synthetic fertilizers in industrial polluting agriculture contributes to climate change.
