The maintenance of soil fertility is a key tenet of organic farming and can be broadly defined as the ability of the soil to support the productivity of the system. The central concept of soil fertility in these systems is the use of legume-based multi-annual rotations together with the judicious...

The combination of rice and fish production into one system is considered to be an efficient means of agricultural land use for small-scale farmers. In some of these so-called rice-fish systems rice and fish are grown in the same field, at the same time; in other systems they are grown in the same...
