In a sustainable civilization agricultural practices will be ecologically driven. Describing the pathway to such a civilization orients many of the current discussions, from soil health to new varietals to GMOs, and from scale (family farms to agribusiness) to questions of culture and local community. EcoCiv’s research focuses on dominant agricultural practices and alternative options, whether traditional or emerging based on new technologies. Clearly, agricultural practices are related to economic practices, energy sources, consumption and transportation, and ethical questions about practices and working conditions. High levels of consensus already exist in this field.
