Sustainable farming

Intensive crop production has led to a substantial loss of biodiversity on farmland, and Integrated Crop Management (ICM) is designed to mitigate this by a more targeted use of chemicals as well as by harnessing natural biological control at the same time as retaining farm profitability.

ICM combines traditional methods, such as crop rotation, with modern approaches, like minimum tillage, to achieve optimum long-term yields at a minimum environmental impact. The components of ICM (crop rotation, cultivation, fertilisers, pest control, and habitat management) are discussed in subpages.
