This publication shows how conservation agriculture can increase crop production, reduce soils erosion and improve rural livelihoods in developing countries. Three criteria, i.e. no mechanical soil disturbance, permanent soil cover and crop rotations, distinguish conservation agriculture from a conventional agricultural system. The report, through a review of conservation- effective systems of land use in Africa and Latin America, presents the set of conditions necessary for farming systems to be sustainable.
