Our Product and the Environment

They are low in greenhouse gas emission and they require a low amount of water and energy.They need about half the fossil energy that goes into the production of other crops. Because of the unique way they deal with nitrogen during growth, they have been found to be extremely beneficial to long term land fertility and in the reduction of C02 emissions.
