CEEW FOLU Sustainable Agriculture in India 2021

Sustainable agriculture, agroecology, regenerative agriculture, organic farming, natural farming are some of the most common terms used to describe various sustainable agriculture approaches. One might ask why so many different terminologies refer to these respective but related concepts. Perhaps it is not essential to bother about the various terms as long as we know what we mean conceptually. However, in the absence of universally accepted definitions of each of these terms, everyone has their interpretation of them. It also means that two different individuals may interpret or even apply the underlying philosophy or concept differently while using the same term.
