Farm Management Practices to Foster Green Growth

image of Farm Management Practices to Foster Green Growth

This report looks at farm management practices with green growth potential, from farmer-led innovations (such as those directly linked to soil and water, Integrated Pest Management, organic farming) to science-led technologies (such as biotechnology and precision agriculture). Global food demand can only be met in a sustainable way if new forms of agricultural production and innovative technologies can be unlocked to increase the productivity, stability, and resilience of production systems with goals beyond just raising yields, including saving water and energy, reducing risk, improving product quality, protecting the environment and climate change mitigation.

Executive summary

The efficient use of resources has become a key priority for policymaking in OECD countries and a core element of green growth strategies. This document provides a synoptic review of a selection of farm management practices with green growth potential, such as those relating to soil and water, organic agriculture and Integrated Pest Management (IPM), biotechnology and precision agriculture. The focus on these farm management practices does not, however, imply that other farm practices are not beneficial to green growth.
