Sustainability

MAWASIM's Farming system for sustainable crop production intensification offers a range of productivity, socio-economic and environmental benefits to producers and to society at large, including high and stable production and profitability; adaptation and reduced vulnerability to climate change; enhanced ecosystem functioning and services; and reductions in agriculture''s greenhouse gas emissions and "carbon footprint".

Our farming system is based on three technical principles:

  • Simultaneous achievement of increased agricultural productivity and enhancement of natural capital and ecosystem services.
  • Higher rates of efficiency in the use of key inputs, including water, nutrients, pesticides, energy, land and labour.
  • Use of managed and natural biodiversity to build system resilience to abiotic, biotic and economic stresses.
