Sustainable agriculture

Sustainable agriculture

In the 1900s, there was a replacement farming with industrial agriculture, which included good agricultural and horticultural practices that included the use of compost as part of biospole agriculture (agricultural biodynamics).

Sustainable agricultural components

  • Protective tillage
  • Agricultural Navigator
  • Biological struggle 
  • Mixed crop 
  • Use mulch 
  • Use biological fertilizers 
  • Use of organic fertilizers 
  •  Change in cultivating history

Agriculture is, in fact, an arts and crafts with science and experience in the production of crops and livestock in small and large organized units. This profession began by man about twelve thousand years ago. Along with the start and development of agriculture, human civilization also began and was on the path to development.
Agriculture is currently the dominant industry in most of the world, and its related industries are among the broadest industrie

Almost all the food and a lot of fibers needed for a garment consumed by humans comes from agricultural production. Today, a man without sustainable agriculture will not be able to live in a complex and collective population, and the increase in the human population depends on the sustainability of agricultural production. Sustainability in agriculture and its products, and environmental aspects and its relationship with existing resources and the world population is of particular importance.

Two principles in sustainable agriculture are of particular importance: first, renewable ecological interactions, and the interaction of agriculture with the surrounding society.

We do not replace anything for farming, and the current resources that are consumed in agriculture today are essential for the future.

The man with his perception has been able to fill all the ecological niches around him. Instead of adapting to the surrounding environment, humans have tried to overcome others and overwhelm them in various ways.

Hillel (1991) believes that the above activities have caused severe instability in agricultural ecosystems and threatened the ability of the earth to balance human populations.

There is still no complete definition for sustainable agriculture, but in general, the following characteristics should be attributed to alternative agriculture:

  1. Diversity of crops instead of continuous planting of one or more crops
  2. Biological control of pests and other innovative methods to reduce pesticide use
  3.  Preventing livestock diseases rather than using antibiotics
  4. Genetic modification of crops for resistance to pests, diseases and drought and effective use of nutrients. Sustainable agriculture includes well-known biological, low-input, organic and alternative agricultural systems, but not limited to.
