Mecanización Agrícola Sostenible

Conservation Agriculture. Training guide for extension agents and farmers in Easter Europe and Central Asia

Agriculture in Eastern Europe and Central Asia is diverse, and has great potential to revitalize the economy of the countries in the region via improved productivity (efficiency) and higher total yield for food, fodder and fibre crops. Conservation agriculture can rise to the major challenge of making sustainable intensification of production systems a reality. In order for farmers to transition to appropriate sustainable production systems, the provision of an adequate enabling environment and access to knowledge and services, including extension, mechanization, inputs and market intelligence, are crucial. Farmer Field Schools are the best place for exchanging experience and knowledge about conservation griculture, building the technical and scientific capacity of national partners, and thus moving towards widespread adoption and uptake of sustainable and viable agricultural practices.
