Sustainable Practices

    To sum up:

  • There are big differences between countries in terms of sustainability.
  • Farmers became more aware of their positive impact in both the environment and the crops.
  • In general, water use efficiency is being improved through more efficient irrigation systems.
  • Concerning renewable energies, solar power systems (photovoltaic panels) are being implemented in farms and production facilities all over the producing countries. Furthermore, nut shells are being used as biomass fuel for power generation.
  • By-products (e.g.husks) are being repurposed as cattle feed, reducing waste and indirectly, CO2 emissions.
