Summary

Mitigation in agriculture needs to be based on two pillars:
- Technically, nitrogen inputs should be reduced, organic fertilizers should replace synthetic fertilizers and storage losses should be minimized. Integrated systems with closed, efficient nutrient cycles should be the order of the day in the future.
- socially, food wastage should be minimized an meat consumption reduced.
