So this means that we are talking about production results that are desirable on both the quantity and the quality levels, all while assuring that future generations will be able to realise the same goals, » agricultural consultant and biodynamics proponent Dominique Massenot says. His definition of sustainable farming goes to show the degree to which respecting the land is so important for agriculture.
