This book describes some of the major environmental and social problems connected with intensive farming; outlines a framework for analyzing its sustainability; discusses key linkages Cited by: Intensive agriculture, also known as intensive farming (as opposed to extensive farming) and industrial agriculture, is a type of agriculture, both of crop plants and of animals, with higher levels of input and output per cubic unit of agricultural land area.

It is characterized by a low fallow ratio, higher use of inputs such as capital and labour, and higher crop yields per unit land area.

Optimal use of these materials and machines produces significantly greater crop yields per unit of land than extensive agriculture, which uses little capital or a result, a farm using intensive agriculture will require less land than an extensive agriculture farm to produce a similar profit.

In practice, however, the increased economies and efficiencies of intensive agriculture. The result of all these changes has been that agriculture has become more intensive, producing higher yields per acre by relying on greater chemicals use and technological inputs.

It also has become more expensive, relying on purchase of machinery and chemicals to replace the heavy labor rcquirements of the past.
