Abstract

The present estimate of the number of people on Earth is 8 billion, but by the middle of the century, it is predicted to reach 9 billion. Simultaneously, the cultivable farm land is being lost to expanding urban areas, industrialization and climate change. The recent World Bank Report estimated that to feed 9 billion people, food production needs to scale up by 70% by 2050. In the present context, the significance of sustainable agriculture is crucial in ensuring the sustenance of the population and mitigating the adverse effects of climate change. Environmental protection, resource conservation, soil fertility maintenance and improvement are the key goals of sustainable agricultural practises. Sincere efforts have been taken to discuss the various sustainable agriculture methods and practices in this assessment.
