Sustainable Agriculture


Since 1994, when the first edition of this Special Reference Brief was compiled, "sustainability" has become a more familiar term. The goal of achieving a sustainable planet, one that will accommodate the basic needs of its present inhabitants while preserving the resources that will enable future generations to flourish, has gained increasing acceptance. Although certainly not mainstream at this point, sustainable agriculture is now being addressed by the agricultural community in significant ways. The mid- to late-nineties have seen:




  • Acceptance of Biodiversity and Climate Change Conventions as international law, ratified by over 120 countries (1992-1999)


  • Establishment of the U.S. President's Council on Sustainable Development and its Task Force on Sustainable Agriculture (1993)


  • Presentation for comment and unprecedented consumer response to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Proposed Standards for Organic Food Production (1997-1998)


  • Enactment of the U.S. Food Quality Protection Act (1997)


  • Celebration of 10 successful years of USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program (1998)
