US food production wastes a lot of food, up and down the entire food chain, and most of that has to do with corn! Researchers have calculated how much energy, money and carbon dioxide could be saved by making just few changes to the way we grow corn, and they think these simple changes could cut the cost of future oil price rises in HALF.
