German farmers spray a total of 40,000 tonnes of pesticides every year to combat insects, weeds and fungal infections. As a result there's less and less for birds to eat. It's high time for conservation-centered agriculture!
Intensive modern agriculture still relies on wild birds, bees and beasts for pollination. But these species — and whole industrial supply chains that depend on them — are at risk, according to a new global survey.
When humans get loud, the impacts are far-reaching for fish, mammals, birds, insects and even plants. The effects are similar, and similarly bad.
If you've never heard of the great bustard, it's probably that there's no room for them where you live. The large bird is under threat. United Nations expert Tilman Schneider explains why, and what we can do about it.
The European Commission has given its blessing to the €54 billion deal, despite opposition from farmers and environmental groups. The acquisition will create the world's largest integrated pesticides and seeds company.
