Module 2 | Unsustainable & Sustainable Cropping Practices

A sustainable cropping practice is one that yields sufficient production, at a sufficiently lower cost, so that a reasonable income for the farming household is provided over time.

Often adopting unsustainable cropping practices can give a farmer a higher income in the first few years, increasing their attractiveness to farmers – particularly if they are unaware of the long- term damage that can result from the use of such practices and the impact on their family’s future income and the environment in which they and their community live.
