Hot Topics in Sustainable Agriculture

Visit SARE's Topic Rooms for in-depth resources on important topics in sustainable agriculture, including:

Cover Crops

The many benefits of cover crops are increasingly appreciated among farmers. They play an important role in erosion control, weed control, soil conservation and soil health. With careful selection and management, they fit into any crop rotation or cropping system, such as no-till farming, and are integral to organic farming.

Season Extension

Find in-depth information about high tunnels, hoop houses and other season extension techniques, including high tunnel construction, commercial greenhouse production, high tunnel vegetable production and more.

Explore additional SARE Topic Rooms on local and regional food systems, and for Southern audiences, on small ruminants and pastured poultry.
