Advances in understanding the potassium cycle in crop production
In this chapter, various aspects relating to the potassium cycle in crop production are discussed, including the use of potassium fertilizer in rain-fed and irrigated agriculture with the focus on soil potassium input and output, crop potassium residue and removal, soil potassium sorption and leaching. A good understanding of the potassium cycle in cropping systems would improve decision making for optimal use of soil potassium reserves and for better management of potassium fertiliser particularly on low potassium soils. 


Integration of crop-livestock in Conservation Agriculture systems
This chapter draws heavily on Brazilian experience, not only because of author affiliations, but due to the fact that Brazil is a current world leader in ICL-CA and in Integrated Crop-Livestock-Forestry management systems under CA (ICLF-CA) adoption and research, currently with 11.5 million hectares under these systems (83% under ICL-CA ) and a government-sponsored Low Carbon Agriculture programme supporting research and extension towards achieving Brazil’s international goals to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. 


Optimising urban forestry: the food connection
Its many contributions to resilient, sustainable and attractive cities have become well documented. This chapter focusses on urban forestry’s contributions to food provision. The chapter introduces the concepts of urban food forestry and urban foraging, presenting detailed case studies for each one. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area 


The role of biodiversity in agroforestry and other types of smallholder farming
The global supply and consumption of food has increased over the last 50 years. However, due to our focus on increased productivity, our access to diverse and healthy foods has radically reduced. Many people remain hungry and increasing numbers have micronutrient deficiencies.
