Abstract This short report compares the industrial food system with peasant farming. Industrial farming gets all the attention (and most of the land). It accounts for more than 80% of the fossil fuel emissions and uses over 70% of the water supply used in agriculture, but it actually produces only about 30% of the world’s food.

In this succinct, illustrated booklet, you’ll find the answers to these questions…

• Who produces more food per hectare?
• Who will conserve our aquatic harvest?
• Who will protect our forest foods?
• Who can reduce agriculture’s GHG emissions?

…and many more.
