Why sustainable agriculture matters
According to an online article posted on the National Geographic website, sustainable agriculture involves “farming practices that mimic natural ecological processes”.
Sustainable agriculture is at the heart of the comprehensive food security strategies of many nations today as they seek to eliminate hunger within their respective territories, while at the same time ensuring they protect the environment.
This practice focuses on providing a sufficient supply of nutritious food to the citizens without adding further pressures on natural resources in the face of exponentially booming populations.
Observing the best agricultural practices that promote healthy food production with due regard to the environment is timely and critical to the global sustainable development movement.
Here we see efforts to promote rationalised use of natural resources to ensure that everybody, including future generations, will have access to these finite resources needed for survival. Part of implementing sustainable agriculture is eliminating food waste and strengthening crop production.
It is at this juncture that technological innovations and human capacity building in the agricultural industry come in.
Trees bring biodiversity, soil fertility, a cooler climate, cleaner air, increased rainfall, fodder, timber, fruits, nuts, green vegetables, medicinal herbs, shade and many other unseen benefits for the survival of all life on earth.
Planting trees is the simplest solution to our present-day environmental problems.
Under the agro-forestry model, farmers are educated about sustainable land use that maintains and increases total yields by combining food crops and tree-based ones.
