Sustainable agriculture in the Sahel? (Integrated farming, perennials and fertilizers)

Sustainable agriculture in the Sahel? (Integrated farming, perennials and fertilizers)

Eco regional approaches for sustainable land use and food production: proceedings of a symposium on eco regional approaches in agricultural research, 12-16 December 1994, ISNAR, The Hague: 213-235

A case is made for the application of an eco-regional approach in vast regions with low quality of natural resources and limited availability of resources per inhabitant. Farmers in such areas have little choice in terms of the options for increased sustainability of land use. Efforts to create more favourable socioeconomic conditions will often be more useful than those directed towards the direct adoption of technical options.
