The papers in this special feature of PNAS highlight innovations in agriculture that could contribute to producing more food without increasing environmental pressures. The papers are based on some of the more exciting ideas that emerged from a forum in Beijing in October 2011 that brought together agricultural and environmental scientists from China with their peers from the rest of the world.
