Timothy Reeves, Graeme Thomas, Gordon Ramsay. (1/1/2016). Save and Grow in practice. Maize, rice, wheat: A guide to sustainable cereal production. Rome, Italy: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
This guide describes the practical application of FAO’s ‘Save and Grow’ model of sustainable crop production intensification to the world’s key food security crops: maize, rice and wheat. With examples from Africa, Asia and Latin America, it shows how ecosystem-based farming systems are helping smallholder farmers to boost cereal yield strengthen their livelihoods, reduce pressure on the environment, and build resilience to climate change. The guide will be a valuable reference for policymakers and development practitioners during the global transition to sustainable food and agriculture.
