Sustainable intensification has been promoted by a number of influential national and international policy groups as the solution to meeting the nutritional needs of a growing global population from a fixed or declining resource base.
This report, written by Dr Andrew Barnes of SRUC's Land Economy, Environment and Society Research Group, is a discussion document aimed at understanding some of the issues related to sustainable intensification and how this can be measured within the Scottish context. An approach using data from the Farm Accounts Survey is used as the basis for discussion.
Also found in the download section is a two page Research Briefing summarising the key findings from the discussion document.
