Sustainable agriculture : combining human and ecological needs with economic development (English)

Sustainable agriculture (SA) is an economically feasible approach that maintains the viability of soil, water, and air while promoting social equity and community well-being. Combining sustainable farming practices with incentives for economic growth is necessary for food security and poverty reduction in the developing world. This Note discusses what these practices are along with ways to engage the local people in the process. Farm operators and local institutions must participate in any technology developments, or agricultural innovations will not be used.
