Pea–wheat intercrops in low-input conditions combine high economic performances and low environmental impacts Intensive agriculture ensures high yields but can cause serious environmental damages. The optimal use of soil and atmospheric sources of nitrogen in cereal–legume mixtures may allow farmers to maintain high production levels and good quality with low external N inputs, and could potentially decrease environmental impacts, particularly through a more efficient energy use. These potential advantages are presented in an overall assessment of cereal–legume systems, accounting for … Continue reading “News Update on Economic Performance: May 2020”

Poverty Alleviation and Tropical Forests—What Scope for Synergies? This paper explores the “state-of-the-art” of the two-way causal links between poverty alleviation and natural tropical forests. Microimpacts of rising poverty can increase or slow forest loss. At the macrolevel, poverty also has an ambiguous effect, but it’s probable that higher income stimulates forest loss by raising demand for agricultural land. The second question is what potential forest-led development has got to alleviate a country’s poverty, in terms of producer benefits, consumer … Continue reading “News Update on Poverty Alleviation Research: Feb – 2020”
