Sustainable agriculture development is a process that requires the participation of a large share of the rural population This participation must be facilitated by supportive policies institutions and financing that taken together can create an enabling environment for climate-smart agriculture at local national and international levels

To explore sustainable agricultural development in this region a field experiment with different cropping systems was conducted in suburban Beijing These cropping systems included a winter wheat and summer maize rotation system for one year (WM) three harvests (winter wheat-summer maize-spring maize) in two years (HT) and continuous spring maize monoculture (CS)

Project Methods Obj 1-1 - Explore alternative crops for adaptation to dryland environmentsFor example in 2017 the following crops were grown for observational or seed-freshening purposes:1) niger 2) flax 3) turnip 4) tillage radish 5) Brassica carinata 6) yellow mustard 7) canaryseed 8) sorghum 9) safflower 10) multi-headed sunflower 11) buckwheat 12) hairy vetch 13) common vetch

Operationally however translating adaptation options into adaptation actions requires consideration of a more comprehensive risk management framework This would allow exploration of quantified scenarios dealing with all of the key sources of risk providing more effective decision making and learning for farmers policymakers and researchers: an increase in "climate knowledge" ( 20 )

Project Methods There are 27 million acres of cultivated dryland in the Central Great Plains region (CGPR) The primary limitation for cropping in the CGPR is a variable drought dominated climate Despite system improvements toward more intensive cropping 58%

Climate adaptation requires farmers to adjust their crop varieties over time and use the right varieties to minimize climate risk Generating variety recommendations for farmers working in marginal heterogeneous environments requires variety evaluation under farm conditions On-farm evaluation is difficult to scale with conventional methods We used a scalable approach to on-farm

Root–soil interactions in the rhizosphere are central to resource acquisition and crop production in agricultural systems However apart from studies in idealized experimental systems rhizosphere processes in real agricultural soils in situ are largely uncharacterized This limits the contribution of rhizosphere science to agriculture and the ongoing Green Revolution Here we argue that

Adaptation activities that span the continuum from sustainable development to climate change can be organized in four categories The first category which includes activities that foster human development focuses on reducing poverty and addressing factors that make communities vulnerable regardless of

Land management practices used by and attitudes toward change to sustainable practices by Utah farmers and ranchers are described A questionnaire was sent to 964 farmers Despite the apparent use of sustainable practices by farmers the majority stated that economic factors availability of information and Federal farm programs were primary constraints limiting adoption of sustainable practices

Take home messages • Sustainable intensification is based on simultaneous improvements in productivity and ecosystem health to underpin profitability • It is not more of what we are currently doing it requires significant system changes towards greater diversification involving crops forages livestock shrubs and trees • Regeneration of soil health soil nitrogen soil carbon and
