What is sustainable agriculture?

The safety of the food sold in the world is increasingly inefficient. The policies that are proposed and the institutions that regulate this type of production are not good enough to ensure the quality of the food that the population consumes. Sustainable agriculture seeks to ensure world food security while promoting healthy ecosystems and supporting the sustainable management of water, land and natural resources.

The first step begins with meeting the needs of agriculture. But those needs must be dealt with fairly; so much organizations as consumers they must win equally, and it is something that is not happening.

The concept of sustainable agriculture tries to regulate the aforementioned, ensuring that the products and services that are consumed are profitable and respectful with the environment and for those who are involved in the process (including companies and consumers).

All this could not be carried out if the relevant institutions are not involved for it (governments, collectivized organizations, institutions, etc.). Changes in relevant systems are urgently needed to achieve the goals (know how to materialize them), be effective in the use of existing resources and the improvement of environmental protection (in all areas).

Although, as we have indicated, it is necessary that governments or organizations in charge of promoting this type of food security be involved. It no longer only affects citizens, but also the companies in charge of offering the products that are consumed and the services they perform (work in the field, product handling, manufacturing, etc.). That is why the policies that are carried out in agricultural matters are too important for everything that we have just explained to be carried out.
