Chapter synopsis: Good agricultural practices (GAPs) vary within and among production systems. Improved production technology and favourable weather result in increased productivity in many parts of the world, but not everywhere. Our objective here is to address the question of whether we produce soybean sustainably. We focus on three case studies – Nebraska/U.S., Brazil and Uganda – to compare and contrast current production practices with research-based information on GAPs, while focusing on production system sustainability. In all three cases, abundant opportunities exist to overcome production constraints while improving sustainability.
