If you have never worked on a farm, you could imagine farming as pretty dreamy. Spent a lot of time in nature, long days under the sun, taking the time to perform tasks across the country. Of course, if you are really working on a farm (especially a large farm), the job can be very stressful for your body. Now there are studies into the relationship between more sustainable farming systems and the desire to increase food production.
What does this look like? In short: how can we intensify agriculture to increase production while keeping it sustainable for the planet and the people who do the job?
This study, titled & # 39; General Review of Redesign of Agricultural Systems for Sustainable Intensification & # 39 ;, appears in the journal Nature Sustainabilityis a big one. It concerns researchers from all over the world, including the UK, the US, Sweden, Ethiopia and New Zealand. They come from a total of 17 universities and research institutes.
