BETTER AND DIFFERENT! - Agroecology Europe

We are sceptical of agroindustrial corporations and, instead, call for agriculture based on peasant farming systems. Our approach defends diversity against monoculture and gives local markets priority over the global market. We argue against the oil and chemicals dependency of today’s agriculture and advocate the use of worms, insects and animals. Agroecological approaches not only mimic ...

AGRO-ECOLOGIE ET DEVELOPPEMENT DURABLE

Abstract: In order to meet economy of scale demands made by large seed and agroindustrial companies, many areas of agriculture have recently evolved in ways which are incompatible with sustainable development, both in terms of damage to agroecosystems and by the continued belief in principles of land concentration and underuse. Farming systems based on agroecology can provide an alternative to ...

KEYS TO UNDERSTANDING AGROECOLOGY - Agriculture

Agroecology is an approach to farming that makes effective use of the resources provided by nature while at the same time preserving nature’s capacity to renew itself. By maintaining a high level of produc-tion at reduced cost (less fuel and fertiliser, fewer crop treatments, for example), farmers can make their income more secure and improve the farm’s economic performance. The condition ...

Agroecology is about understanding and enhancing the mechanisms that can ensure agroecosystem productions and resilience on the long-term. One cycle ofoil palmplantations lasts for 25years at least. The crop could last much longer but the harvest becomes too complex and expensive as soon as the palms are too high, hence palms are felled and another crop cycle initiated. The crop stand goes ...
