Plantation & Advance Cultivation
One of the world’s greatest challenges is to guarantee food security for the world’s growing population whilst also ensuring greater sustainability of food production, trade, and consumption.
Agriculture has made many technological advances, increasing its level of productivity and thus creating wealth in rural areas and lowering the price of food. However, the successful growth of the sector has been accompanied by widespread concern over food safety scares, damage to workers’ health and the loss of biodiversity from intensified agriculture.
The successful transformation of organic agriculture from a series of scientific experiments in the 1950s to a US$ 55 billion industry today can be partially attributed to these concerns: consumers are willing pay more for a way of farming that promotes healthy agro-ecosystems and avoids the use of agrochemicals.
Policymakers similarly see the social and economic value of a production system that generates environmental benefits, like agro biodiversity and carbon sequestration, avoids the need for workers to handle pesticides and does not impose environmental costs on the taxpayer, like cleaning up water pollution.
Organic agriculture also has a role in achieving development objectives with developing countries exporting premium price tropical an d counter seasonal crops to developed countries.
There is still considerable potential for organic agriculture to grow but it requires a more favorable policy environment. For this to happen, policy makers, civic society, and the private sector rely upon credible information to support their decision-making.
