Sensing volatile organic compounds (VOC) is a promising approach in particular for the development of non-invasive, fast and inexpensive tool for the anticipated diagnostic of diseases and monitoring
As an extension of a previous work (Chen and Han, 2015a), this study explored the arable land use of the world economy from source of exploitation to sink of final consumption via the global supply ch

Direct drilling - where the ground is not ploughed before a new crop is established - helps conserve soil moisture and structure and prevents wind erosion. Switching to direct drilling, or "no-till", can therefore bring big savings in labour and machinery costs. However does this translate to better gross margins? A benchmarking study, which compared no-till with more conventional approach, suggest there are savings to be made despite dips in yield. This supports SDG12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
Food waste is a matter intrinsically linked with the growing challenges of food security, resource and environmental sustainability, and climate change.
Successful Food-energy-water (FEW) nexus projects will be more likely to succeed if a transdisciplinary approach is used.
Evaluations of food, energy and water (FEW) linkages are rapidly emerging in contemporary nexus studies.
