This professional journal is devoted specifically and entirely to the rapidly growing field of sustainable agriculture. Published by Food Products Press and edited by Raymond P. Poincelot, a leading scholar and author in the field, the Journal of Sustainable Agriculture focuses on new and unique systems in which resource usage and environmental protection are kept in balance with the needs of productivity, profits, and incentives that are necessary for the agricultural marketplace. It increases professional and public awareness and gains support for these necessary changes in our agricultural industry. This timely journal examines our current agricultural industry and the threat to its resource base. The goal is to promote the study and application of sustainable agriculture for solutions to the problems of resource depletion and environmental misuse. Unless these problems are resolved, our soil, water, and energy resources will be insufficient to maintain agricultural productivity very far into the future. On the cutting edge of a growing environmental awareness around the world, the Journal of Sustainable Agriculture features: articles on research; innovative practices; new technology; IPM (Integrated Pest Management) programs; organic farming; energy use; the economic, social, and philosophical aspects of sustainable agriculture; conservations; future projections. The journal offers national and international coverage and features articles on specific disciplines and interdisciplinary studies. Book reviews, News Watch, announcements, Dialogue (positions, opinions, commentary, and letters), and topical reviews round out the journal. It provides a broad base of positive information about sustainable agriculture - a system that will be able to meet the needs of future generations. The Journal of Sustainable Agriculture is primarily for audiences in agriculture - research scientists who work for the USDA and state agricultural research stations, educators, extension workers, farmers, food and fiber processors, students, as well as civic-minded citizens, planners and policymakers, those involved in environmental or ecological activities, and anyone with an interest in and a concern for agriculture.
