GR:  This story is misleading.  Yes, farmers could do a better of protecting natural margins of their fields.  They could also quit spreading artificial fertilizer and pesticides and pick up their hoes.  Of course, they will argue they can’t do that and produce enough food for all the hungry people.  The number of hungry people is growing.  And this means that farms must grow and natural areas and wildlife must fade away.
