Sustainable agriculture and the production challenge at the threshold of the third millennium

Sustainable agriculture and the production challenge at the threshold of the third millennium

Informacoes Economicas Instituto de Economia Agricola 25(11): 25-36

The purpose of the paper is to show that the main staple products in Brazil can be produced by a sustainable agricultural system with family labour, provided that such sustainability is redefined from technical and social points of view. The necessary agricultural acreage to supply food for the estimated level of consumption in the year 2000 is estimated.
