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.

Unleashing the green growth potential of integrated pest management

This chapter examines the principles, concepts and practices of integrated pest management practices (IPM) and their impact on resource efficiency and productivity. It is argued that IPM can have win-win-win benefits for profitability, the environment and human health. In most OECD countries, IPM adoption is primarily in response to demand for improved food safety and lower health risks from both consumers and producers.
