What does the term sustainable agriculture actually mean
Sustainable agriculture is a specific type of farming that does NOT endanger future resources, promotes environmentally friendly techniques and at the same time supports a type of precision farming, where every detail is calculated to boost productivity with no impact on the environment.
The enterprises promoting sustainable agriculture use farming practices such as crop rotation or new water conservation techniques and promote greater diversity in agricultural systems, a reduction in the use of chemical fertilisers, and an inclusive and agricultural environment that provides economic and social opportunities for the community as a whole.
