Sustainable agriculture

Sustainable agriculture integrates:
  • environment
  • livelihoods, and
  • social equity.
Agriculture must meet today's needs without hurting future generations, by maintaining or enhancing land and natural resources, while ensuring proper working and living conditions of labourers, rural communities, and consumer health and safety.

Agro-Insight has a systems perspective of the natural and social sciences, from the farm, to the local ecosystem, and to communities affected by the farming system locally and globally. Agro-Insight takes a broad view of the links between farming, people and the environment.

Making agriculture sustainable is a process. For farmers, it often involves a series of small, realistic steps. Agro-insight is able to understand what new linkages are needed and how technical knowledge can best be presented to support rural learning.
