Conservation agriculture (CA) is an agro-ecological approach that aims to achieve sustainable and profitable intensification of agricultural systems through the application of three inter-linked principles, based on locally-formulated practices: Minimal soil disturbance, permanent soil cover, and crop rotations. The adoption of CA farming systems have demostrated tangible advantages in economics, environmental and soil quality aspects over conventional farming systems. CA holds tremendous potential for all sizes of farms and agro-ecological systems.
This Special Issue intends to cover recent progress in different aspects related to the implementation of CA in a wide range of cropping systems across different agro-ecologies.Dr. Yash Dang
