Facts about sustainable agriculture

by The 100 Companies

Sustainable agriculture can be defined in many ways, but ultimately it seeks to sustain farmers, resources and communities by promoting certain practices. Here are a couple things to know about it:

– Roughly 40% of today’s global population works in agriculture, making it the largest employer in the world.

– Sustainable agriculture is the rejection of the industrial approach to food production.

– The ecological and social price of factory farms is erosion, deforestation, contaminated soil and water, loss of biodiversity, labor abuses and the decline of family farms.

–  Sustainable agriculture embraces a range of techniques that are organic, free-range, holistic and biodynamic.
