Sustainable crop production intensification can be summed up in the words "save" and "grow." Sustainable intensification means a productive agriculture that conserves and enhances natural resources. It uses an ecosystem approach that draws on nature's contribution to crop growth and applies appropriate external inputs at the right time, in the right amount. FAO's aim over the next 15 years is to assist developing countries in adopting save and grow policies and approaches. This book presents a new paradigm: sustainable crop production intensification (SCPI), which produces more from the same area of land while conserving resources, reducing negative impacts on the environment and enhancing natural capital and the flow of ecosystem services.
