Certification schemes for Conservation Agriculture systems

Code: 9781786765833
Juliana Albertengo, Iowa State University, USA

Chapter synopsis: For many centuries, soil health or soil quality has been defined as the capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosystem for sustaining plants, animals, and humans; being the base of life. Hence, the concept of a correct soil management as an essential tool to keep soils sustainable for future generations is not new. Currently, producers can certify their management practices to ensure product or process quality. This chapter introduces and describes certification schemes prepared for Conservation Agriculture systems. The chapter examines examples of certification systems such as AC (Agricultura Certificada), ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification), RSB (Round Table on Sustainable Biomaterials), BONSUCRO (Better Sugarcane Initiative) and RTRS (Round Table on Responsible Soybean). Finally, the chapter looks ahead to potential future trends of development in this area.
