Examining Sustainable Intensification Research Priorities
MetadataShow full item record
As demand for food grows and constraints to production increase, sustainable intensification (SI) has been proposed as a paradigm to feed the world while conserving natural resources. This paper, a discussion paper for the Agrilinks e-consultation on sustainable intensification, provides an introduction to the SI framework and a review of the related literature. It focuses on the research topics chosen for the forum: farming systems, research rigor, integration and scaling out of science, and biologically-based management of natural resources.
