Using agroecology for multiperformance agriculture

The three core elements of agroecology are the protection and promotion — and even the reintroduction — of biodiversity, closing biogeochemical cycles and landscape-level system approaches. Across all types of agriculture, this means:

  • designing, developing, modelling and measuring the performance of systems introduced into industries and landscapes, and assessing their robustness
  • developing resources to diversify production and to associate crop and livestock production
  • describing and understanding the services provided by production systems from plot- to landscape-level, managing positive and negative services, analysing compromises, etc.
  • identifying the drivers and impediments for adopting production systems on ecological bases, identifying the best practices for disseminating innovation
