The effect of cultivation practices and management on sustainable crop production have long been underestimated.
Agroforestery is a crop production system that has been proven to be both productive and sustainable. Alongside increased productivity the system promotes biodiversity, soil fertility and water resources. The ultimate goal should be to produce food in harmony with nature with the inclusion of micro- and macro-organisms. An ideal system would have enough reserves to develop resilience and self regulate. Using this approach, we gain microbes as partners and allies, making biodiversity the driving force for productivity and profitability.
