This report looks at farm management practices with green growth potential, from farmer-led
innovations (such as those directly linked to soil and water, Integrated Pest Management,
organic farming) to science-led technologies (such as biotechnology and precision
agriculture). Global food demand can only be met in a sustainable way if new forms
of agricultural production and innovative technologies can be unlocked to increase
the productivity, stability, and resilience of production systems with goals beyond
just raising yields, including saving water and energy, reducing risk, improving product
quality, protecting the environment and climate change mitigation.
