This technical document aims to explore the potential for low greenhouse gas emission (GHG) agriculture. It examines current farming practices and incorporates scientific databases from long‑term field experiments as case studies for low GHG agriculture to. Further, it studies the changes that are needed for low greenhouse gas agriculture systems to become a reality. It also elucidates the adaptive capacity of agro-ecological farming system approaches, using organic system case studies from the scientific literature.
