By Eric Lichtfouse

Sustainable agriculture is a quickly transforming into box aiming at generating foodstuff and effort in a sustainable means for our kids. This self-discipline addresses present matters comparable to weather switch, expanding meals and gas costs, hunger, weight problems, water pollutants, soil erosion, fertility loss, pest keep watch over and biodiversity depletion. Novel strategies are proposed in keeping with built-in wisdom from agronomy, soil technological know-how, molecular biology, chemistry, toxicology, ecology, economic system, philosophy and social sciences. As real society matters at the moment are intertwined, sustainable agriculture will carry options to construct a more secure global. This e-book sequence analyzes present agricultural concerns and proposes replacement recommendations, as a result supporting all scientists, decision-makers, professors, farmers and politicians wishing to construct secure agriculture, strength and nutrition structures for destiny generations.
