This volume is the revised English translation of the German title, "Bodenfruchtbarkeit und Standortgerechte Landwirtschaft". It presents a range of practices conducive to sustainable agricultures, and is of particular importance for the development of smallholdings in the tropics. These include agroforestry, intensive fallowing and green manuring, the use of mulch, compost, stable manure, and not least, the purposeful use of natural symvbionts. The aim of all of these practices is the maintenance of soil fertility using a minimum of external inputs. Much ancient knowledge related to these practices have been forgotten over the years. They are re-examined here, in the light of recent research findings.
