What is Sustainability in Agriculture?

To sustain something means to maintain for an undetermined length of time. In reference to agriculture, it takes on the additional loaded meaning of conservation, preservation and safety. Consumers want to feel good about the food they eat, and the idea of sustainable farming gives them security and less guilt when they purchase food in the store. It gives them a comfortable position from which they live and feed their family. Sustainability is personal, emotional and eternal in its perception power.

Elyse Mahoro Woow. quelle technique! Conserver les tomates dans la cendre pendant 5 mois?Tres interessante! C'est tres important, les centres de recherches agronomiques devraient investir a prouver que cette technique est inoffensive pour qu'elle puisse etre adopter par beaucoup d'agriculteurs de tomates pour eviter la perte et augmenter leur profit.
