Here is an easy-to-read, practical introduction to sustainable agriculture: what it means and why it is needed. It is the first book to synthesize the goals of sustainable agriculture into eight comprehensive steps. This essential volume presents a convincing critique of our current agricultural system and an introduction to an alternative system which gives more consideration to future generations. The Next Green Revolution is a well-researched introduction to the field, written with a minimum of jargon.To view an excerpt online, find the book in our QuickSearch catalog at www.HaworthPress.com.
