Agricultural Diversity and Agroecology

Recent agricultural development policies have begun to shift away from the promotion of a few staple crops toward practices that encourage crop diversity. The belief is that crop diversification is an effective strategy for addressing loss of biodiversity, rural poverty, and climate change. One solution is promoting a circular agriculture system that better coordinates the planting industry, the livestock industry, the waste disposal industry, and agricultural product services as connected links in a chain to build a unified whole.
