unit of Agriculture

A sustainable agriculture is one that, over the long term, enhances environmental quality and the resource base on which agriculture depends; provides for basic human food and fiber needs; is economically viable; and enhances the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole. FSDR is an organization for the Promotion of Sustainable Agriculture that uses locally available renewable resources, appropriate and affordable technologies and minimizes the use of external and purchased inputs, thereby increasing local independence and self sufficiency and ensuring a source of stable income for marginal peasants and rural communities. With regard to the future development of the Common Agricultural Policy, we describe guidelines, practices and suggestions for agricultural production, covering a wide range of aspects such as management and planning, human and social capital, water use and protection, climate change and air quality, integrating humans with their environment, soil management, crop nutrition and protection, crop rotation, resource management, product storage and waste disposal.
