As a result of recent research and attention on protecting our environment, it has become a priority that Americans look for alternative ways to conserve energy while maintaining a healthy agricultural output.

When asked this question, the number one answer was “reducing emissions” which received 34% of the votes. Coming in second was “obtaining more farm land” with 31% of the votes. Another 16% felt that “more crop rotation” was the most important area to focus, and ten percent chose “improving air quality”. Lastly, nine percent voted for “improving water quality”.
