Agroecology-based farming practices for sustainability in crop production and protection of natural resources.


Agriculture is facing many difficulties at present and has to be prepared for even greater challenges in future. Important among them are: produce more food with less land, water and other resources; conserve agrobiodiversity and natural habitats that have an influence on farming; adopt production practices that secure food quality and nutritive value while adapting to climate change or contribute to its mitigation; and protect food systems against spillovers of biological origin and contaminations of chemical origin.
