Integrated farming systems and future directions for Asian farming systems research and extension



Integrated farming systems and future directions for Asian farming systems research and extension



Journal of the Asian Farming Systems Association 1(1): 91-99



The incorporation of aquaculture in agriculture and livestock systems to produce integrated farming systems makes eminent economic and ecological sense because, theoretically at least, the individual sub-systems produce higher yields of a wider range of commodities per unit area of land and water than could be otherwise obtained; costs of inputs are reduced, often to just an opportunity cost, by mostly on-farm sourcing; and such systems are environmentally benign and, hence, sustainable.
