Hot Topics in Sustainable Agriculture

Visit SARE's Topic Rooms for in-depth resources on important topics in sustainable agriculture, including:

Cover Crops

The many benefits of cover crops are increasingly appreciated among farmers. They play an important role in erosion control, weed control, soil conservation and soil health. With careful selection and management, they fit into any crop rotation or cropping system, such as no-till farming, and are integral to organic farming.

Season Extension

Find in-depth information about high tunnels, hoop houses and other season extension techniques, including high tunnel construction, commercial greenhouse production, high tunnel vegetable production and more.

Explore additional SARE Topic Rooms on local and regional food systems, and for Southern audiences, on small ruminants and pastured poultry.

What is Sustainable Agriculture?

SARE Folder_03_lowres

Every day, farmers and ranchers around the world develop new, innovative strategies to produce and distribute food, fuel and fiber sustainably. While these strategies vary greatly they all embrace three broad goals, or what SARE calls the 3 Pillars of Sustainability:

• Profit over the long term
• Stewardship of our nation's land, air and water
• Quality of life for farmers, ranchers and their communities

There are almost as many ways to reach these goals as there are farms and ranches in America.
