This pamphlet explores conservation agriculture (CA), including its definition and principles, benefits, technologies, implementation, and frequently asked questions. CA relies on three basic principles: permanent soil cover, minimal soil disturbance, and crop rotations. CA provides numerous environmental, social and economic benefits, but adoption of CA has been relatively slow world-wide.
