Sustainable intensifi cation of agricultural systems has been suggested – in addition to reducing waste and changing consumption habits – as a way to increase food, feed, fuel, and fi ber security in the twenty-fi rst century. Here we describe three primary strategies of agricultural intensifi cation – conventional intensifi cation, temporal intensifi cation, and spatial intensifi cation – and how they can be used to manage and integrate food and second-generation crop portfolios.

Abstract

Sustainable intensifi cation of agricultural systems has been suggested – in addition to reducing waste and changing consumption habits – as a way to increase food, feed, fuel, and fi ber security in the twenty-fi rst century. Here we describe three primary strategies of agricultural intensifi cation – conventional intensifi cation, temporal intensifi cation, and spatial intensifi cation – and how they can be used to manage and integrate food and second-generation crop portfolios.
