Abstract

Farming styles are distinctive patterns through which agricultural production is organized and developed. Different styles result in different levels of intensity and sustainability. This means that encouraging and stimulating specific farming styles might result in considerable agricultural development and growth of total food production. Currently, peasant-like styles of farming offer a great deal of promise for feeding the world in a sustainable way.
