An analysis of some paradoxes in alternative agriculture and a vision of sustainability for future food systems
AbstractThe paper offers an analysis of some of the prevailing practices in sustainable agriculture and points out some of the paradoxes that need to be addressed and resolved in order to enhance acceptability of sustainable agriculture by the general public. Education and research in sustainable agriculture are suggested as possible tools via which solutions to the paradoxes may be found. Preserving the homeostasis of agroecosystems constitutes the ultimate goal of a sustainable agriculture.
