  • Combatting diseases in the greenhouse before they become visible

    A camera that maps photosynthesis, a DNA test that can measure the slightest traces of pathogens, or a precision spray system that only affects the plant and not the surrounding air… The Gezonde Kas (‘healthy greenhouse’) project has, over the last four years, allowed for the development of a sophisticated system of monitoring and disease control. It is now ready for practical ...

  • Can a Greenhouse Grow Energy Savings, Too?

    A grocery store, greenhouse, hotel and community college will be among a diverse group of West Coast organizations testing the next generation of fuel cells that produce both electric power and heat while saving energy, thanks to a $2.8 million combined industry and government award announced today by the Department of Energy’s ...

  • Africa could reduce greenhouse gases, says UN

    Although Africa contributes significantly to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources other than fossil fuels, it could be absorbing more carbon from the atmosphere than it puts back in, according to CarboAfrica, an international research project of 15 institutions from Africa and Europe that includes FAO. Studying wild fires in South Africa's Kruger Park, carbon dioxide flows in the ...

  • Oil spray reduces greenhouse gas emissions from pig finishing barns

    Animal feeding operations are an important emission source of air pollutants including methane and carbon dioxide—known greenhouse gases. Recent inventories suggest that animal manure makes a significant contribution to global methane emissions. As a consequence, greenhouse gas emissions can potentially become a limiting factor in the development and sustainability of animal production and ...

  • EPA awards $7.8 million in grants to combat greenhouse gases

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that 20 U.S. communities, including two Indian Tribes, will receive $7.8 million in grants for projects that will reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs).
