Sustainable Agriculture: Defining Actionable and Profitable Systems


Sustainable agriculture is the future of farming. As the transition from traditional farm models to sustainable agriculture makes its way across America and the world, one farm at a time, it is important to understand its definition as well as its impact environmentally, agronomically, and economically.

The purpose of this paper is to provide an educated explanation of what sustainable agriculture is and actionable ways in which it can be achieved. Environmental sustainability practices such as integrated pest management, cover crops, and precision agriculture are strategies that will be explored. Additionally, it is the intent of this paper to explain how economically sustainable practices can support profitable and productive farms.
