This paper reports the study on Conservation Agriculture (CA) cotton on smallholder farmers living in Paraguay. It illustrates the contribution of the CA System in reducing soil disturbance through alternative technique (such as direct seeding and crop rotation) and minimizing the damage to the environment caused by the conventional tillage system. It also highlights the limits and provides conclusions about this approach.
