INTRODUCTION India’s most important crops include cotton, tea, rice, wheat, and sugarcane. In addition to these more general, theoretical topics, papers also discuss more geographically specific topics, including soil nutrient dynamics in integrated crop-livestock systems in the highlands of Ethiopia, rural development and sustainable land use in the hillsides of Honduras, resource use efficiency on owned and sharecropped plots in. Bolivia Table of Contents. Livestock production was active and well diversified. Beef cattle numbered an estimated 6 million head in and dominated all livestock production. Beef was the preferred meat in Bolivia. Unlike the rest of the agricultural sector, beef output grew over 4 percent a year during the s.

    Africa RISING offers demand-driven, locally tailored, and resource-saving agricultural innovations for sustainable intensification to improve household welfare and at the same time enhance sustainability. The program works at the scale of smallholder farm household and, as necessary, at the landscape level. It focuses not only on crop and livestock, but also agroforestry, .

The overall objective is to develop environmentally sustainable and economically feasible crop/forage/beef cattle systems that will assure the viability of agricultural activities in the Texas High Plains while protecting its natural resources and putting this knowledge into practice.

Sustainable intensification of agricultural systems is conceptualised as increasing the output of agricultural production, processing and commercialization activities, while at the same time increasing the efficiency of natural, physical, financial and human resource investments and reducing negative environmental and social impacts (Pretty et al., ).

An entry theme is a broad topic or objective that applies across a region (e.g. intensification of crop–livestock systems).Cited by: Project R Forest/Agriculture Interface (including Hillsides) Production System Project completed in Sustainable Nutrient Cycling in Crop/Livestock Systems Experimental and simulation modelling techniques were used to examine the implications of changes in nitrogen dynamics in animals on the behaviour of nitrogen in soils to which their.

There are already over 1 billion (about 15% of the human population) people hungry and living in poverty, and 75% of them as well as other less poor but vulnerable people live in rural areas and depend on farming for their livelihoods, with the majority relying on small scale crop-livestock systems, including those that are integrated with long haul pastoral systems.

Book Description. Sustainable Intensification (SI) has recently emerged as a key concept for agricultural development, recognising that yields must increase to feed a growing world population, but it must be achieved without damage to the environment, on finite land resources and while preserving social and natural capital.

Crop-livestock interactions provide a key to ecological sustainability by intensifying nutrient and energy cycles. Crop residues are an important source of forage in smallholder farming systems.
