UN makes case for agroecology

leave a comment »

A UN report released this time last year talks about how agroecological methods of growing food outperform systems that use chemical fertilizers.

Agroecology, simply put, is the management of agricultural systems along ecological lines; recognizing that agriculture itself is its own ecology.  Agroecology is not tied to one specific type of farming, for example organic, but instead looks at context.  It is a way of studying our food production systems.
