FARRE defines a set of common principles and practices to help farmers achieve these goals:


  • Producing sufficient high quality food, fibre and industrial raw materials
  • Meeting the demands of society
  • Maintaining a viable farming business
  • Caring for the environment
  • Sustaining natural resources


  • Organisation and management
  • Monitoring and auditing
  • Crop protection
  • Animal husbandry
  • Soil and water management
  • Crop nutrition
  • Energy management
  • Waste management and pollution prevention
  • Wildlife and landscape management
  • Crop rotation and variety choice

I don't see how adding these bullet points improves the article. It's just a list of buzzwords. I mean, who would be against monitoring and auditing? Don't farmers already do this?

And what is unique about integrated farming's approach to crop rotation or animal husbandry? --Wing Nut 15:27, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
