Agroecology is often brought up as an alternative development pathway for livestock systems. Yet, what does it mean in practice? In this article we find out by asking beef farmers themselves how they put agroecological principles into practice.
How can the lack of socioeconomic principles of agroecology in the literature be filled ? What are the distinctions between the theoretical principles of agroecology and their practical applications ?
How agricultural research shapes a technological regime that develops genetic engineering but locks out agroecological innovations
This paper shows how the concepts of technological paradigms and trajectories can help analyse the agricultural science and technology landscape and dynamics. Genetic engineering and agroecology can be usefully analysed as two different technological paradigms.
This article identifies twelve factors impeding wider adoption of multi-resistant cultivars. These factors explain why current wheat-cropping systems are maintained in a ‘pesticide lock-in’ situation.
