What is sustainable farming?

Agriculture often places significant pressure on natural resources and the environment. Sustainable agricultural practices are intended to protect the environment, expand the Earth’s natural resource base, and maintain and improve soil fertility. Based on a multi-pronged goal, sustainable agriculture seeks to:

  • Increase profitable farm income

  • Promote environmental stewardship

  • Enhance quality of life for farm families and communities

  • Increase production for human food and fiber needs

Why is sustainable farming important?

Sustainable agriculture frequently encompasses a wide range of production practices, including conventional and organic. A regionally integrated system of plant and animal production practices are designed to produce long-term results such as:

  • Production of sufficient human food, feed, fiber, and fuel to meet the needs of a sharply rising population

  • Protection of the environment and expansion of the natural resources supply

  • Sustainment of the economic viability of agriculture systems
