Multi-functional agricultural system Produce and provide multiple products and functions - food, other products and services Ecosystem services (MA, 2005) ; provisioning (e.g. food, fresh water, wood, fuel), supporting (e.g. nutrient cycling, soil formation, primary production), regulating (e.g. carbon sequestration, biological pest control, water purification), and cultural (aesthetic, spiritual, educational, recreational)
