Abstract: 

Modern intensive agriculture has made tremendous gains in food production, with yields tripling since 1950. However, these gains have not come without costs, including water pollution, soil depletion, loss of biodiversity, and extensive use of chemical herbicides and pesticides. More effort is going into exploring agricultural methods that work with natural systems, rather than fighting them, and creating farming which can support sustainable yields around the world.
