Abstract

The earth has been groaning under the burden dysfunctional farming methods laden with infrastructures that do not meet prescribed standards. The ultimate goal therefore, will be to enable the public understand the concept of sustainability. We are called to seek for alternate ways of dealing with the earth in order to preserve our waters, the air and soil which is the soul of life. The planet is so often represented as land. Joel Glanzberg stated that it “is easier to work with nature by understanding the environment that we live in, and then improve it.” (Glanzberg, 1990). This essay examines the frantic efforts to meet the worlds food needs, and finds that modern farming methods increases not only crop output, but enhances the environments regenerative capacity. Nevertheless, some traditional farming practises may still promote sustainability needs to be updated to increase efficiency to cater for today’s ever growing population.


Key words: Sustainability, agricultural, farming, needs.
