IFOAM Guide to Biodiversity and Landscape Quality in Organic Agriculture - Download
The IFOAM Guide to Biodiversity and Landscape Quality in Organic Agriculture is designed to provide practical working examples and suggestions for farmers and advisers who are aiming for real positive change on farmlands world wide. Proven innovations from a wide variety of farms, traditions and agro-ecological zones are described, along with the underlying ecological and agricultural principles that make them effective. The more we all understand of the potential benefits and synergies of enhanced biodiversity and landscape quality within any and all types of agriculture, the more effective and appropriate the solutions that arise in our own contexts will be. This Guide provides a start for that process on which we can build, within the traditions of Organic Agriculture, but applicable for all rural land use.
