Integration and synergies at farm through to global levels
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation by the International Livestock Research Institute explores the need for USAID Feed the Future’s Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resources (SANREM) Innovation Lab to integrate research on livestock and crop production systems. It supports the recognition that SANREM’s promotion of conservation agriculture can result in tradeoffs with livestock production: the application of conservation agriculture’s principle of retaining a soil cover creates competition for the use of biomass as livestock forage or soil cover. The presentation describes examples and strategies of innovative research integration to identify sustainable development options.
