Overview

Conservation Agriculture: Environment, Farmers Experiences, Innovations, Socio-Economy, Policy by L. Garcia-Torres

In introducing 62 papers from the I World Congress on Conservation Agriculture (CA) held in Madrid in April 2001, García-Torres (Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, Cordoba, Spain) notes that CA, to arrest soil erosion, is currently practiced mainly in the Americas and Australia. European groups have been formed to heighten awareness of land use issues and facilitate change. Contributors discuss CA's economic and environmental benefits, farmers' experience with it, international cooperation, innovations (e.g., no-tillage technologies), industry adaptations, and case studies of CA policy implications for developing areas.
