Climate-smart traditional agricultural practices. Agroforestry is practised worldwide as a land-use management system but widespread in tropical regions (Pandey 2002). Article  This review article advocates traditional agriculture as a climate-smart agriculture approach to sustainable food production. The heap of organic waste undergoes microbial degradation that converts organic waste into compost. Cheese manufacture allowed the cows to be in production only in the green season but provided a year-round income from the sale of aged cheese. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, IPCC, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007a) Synthesis report. The majority of yearlings are marketed from 60 to 90 days before they are fat, which indicates that it is essential to secure calves of the type that will fatten easily.”.

Traditional farming : 1.Uses manure & compost 2.More farm labours & no machines 3.Depended on seasonal rainfall 4 Animals are used to plough the field 5.Production is less but the crops are of high quality Modern farming … J Environ Manage 182:238–246, Triberti L, Nastri A, Baldoni G (2016) Long-term effects of crop rotation, manure and mineral fertilisation on carbon sequestration and soil fertility. It is used in livestock, watering gardens and other domestic uses. Dairymen were the only livestock farmers who tended to buy–rather than grow–their corn needs.

Crop rotation refers to the practice of growing a sequence of plant species on the same land (Bullock 1992; Dury et al. We are living in the anthropocene era where human-driven environmental changes deteriorate geographical and ecological resilience of the earth system (Crutzen 2002; Steffen et al.

Sustainable food production is one of the major challenges of the twenty-first century in the era of global environmental problems such as climate change, increasing population and natural resource degradation including soil degradation and biodiversity loss. Heavy veal was often called “baby beef.”. It increases the plant biodiversity and helps in promoting the diversity in diet in local communities that are adaptable to the climate variation and extreme weather conditions. 2003; Kemausuor et al.
