Sustainable Intensification Integration of crops and Livestock: Context and future perspectives

  1. 1. Integrated Crop-Livestock Farming Systems Sustainable Intensification Integration of Crops and Livestock: Context and future perspectives Paulo César de Faccio Carvalho, Caterina Batello & Eric Kueneman
  2. 2. New Challenges for Agriculture • Huge global demands for food, feed, fiber and fuels • Global soaring food prices crisis is part of the symptomology of neglected agriculture • Addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation
  3. 3. Production Increases through Good Farming Practices • The new production technologies must address: – Productivity – Environmental Care and Ecosystem Services – Social Issues and Concerns – Food Safety – Economic viability
  4. 4. Renewed pasture after crop phase Pasture degradation (high stocking rate x no fertilization) Central Brazil: ICLS to renew pastures in degradation and produce biomass for no-tilled systems
  5. 5. The effects of grazing in no-tillage systems: is grazing deleterious? 11,4 kg 3,0 kg 0,6 kg 0,6 kg 6,0 kg 0,6 kg N P K S Ca Mg Nutrient extraction by a 450 kg beef cattle (Ball et al. (1991) Grazing animals recycle most of the nutrients
  6. 6. How animals should be managed in these systems?

  13. 13. FAO Facilitation • Monitoring innovations and constraints in agriculture and food systems globally • Awareness raising for better strategies and policies • Networking and coalition building • Information flow, and knowledge management
  14. 14. PROJECTS AND NORMATIVE WORK++ • Development of field activities for pilot-testing cropping systems and integration of crop and livestock production in selected ecologies • Support to FAO member countries for the development of policies and agreements related to best agricultural practices
  15. 15. Integrated production systems in West Africa (oncho-freed ecosystems) (RAF)
  16. 16. Better agriculture in Latin America contributes to global food security Gracias Obrigado Thank you
