Broadscale Agriculture

Broadscale agriculture refers to field management techniques at the landscape scale. Here the term is used to describe the underlying methods for managing the agricultural landscape, whether the landscape is being managed specifically for animals, crops, biomass or biodiversity.

Permaculture design enables the realisation of ecologically rich landscapes that produce food with reduced inputs and reduced dependency upon refined chemicals and other external and artificial compounds, whilst creating diversified and increased total yields. To achieve this, permaculture farm designers incorporate new and old sustainable and restorative agricultural practices, land management techniques and strategies from around the world.
