Sustainable agriculture and environment in the humid tropics by The National Academy of Sciences 1993 702pp ISBN 0 309 04749 8 National Academy Press 2101 Constitution Avenue Washington DC 20418 USA
Rain forests are rapidly being cleared in the humid tropics to keep pace with food demands, economic needs and population growth. At the same time, important natural resources are being eroded or lost due to unsound practices. Sustainable agriculture and the environment in the humid tropics provides critically needed direction for developing strategies that both mitigate land degradation, deforestation and biological resource losses and help the economic status of tropical countries. The book includes a practical discussion of 12 major land use options for boosting food production and enhancing local economies while protecting the natural resource base. Recommendations for developing technologies needed for sustainable agriculture are included together with a strategy for changing policies that erode natural resources and bio-diversity.
