Exciting News from CREATE team!

We’re thrilled to share our latest strides in sustainable food systems and climate resilience.

Through intensive research, we’ve delved into the carbon footprints of key crops, as understanding the intricate connections between resource use, like water, land, and carbon, is essential for smarter, more resilient agricultural practices.

 Our recently prepared infographics below on carbon footprints for grape, fig and hazelnut was prepared with cradle to farm gate approach. Grape production has the highest carbon footprint at fertilizer and packaging materials use, whereas for hazelnut, cultivation technique is prominent in terms of footprints. For fig, soil tillage, cold storage and deep-freezing to kill storage pests in organic dried fig production are the major sources for carbon emissions.

Stay tuned for carbon footprint infographics of the remaining key crops.
