Agriculture and forestry are major human activities on the global landscape. Increasingly, data show that many widely employed agricultural and forestry practices are having significant adverse effects on local and regional soil conditions, water quality, biological diversity, climatic patterns, and long-term biological and agricultural productivity.Information about the open-access journal Journal of Agriculture and Rural Development in the Tropics and Subtropics in DOAJ.
