    Save and Grow in practice: Maize, rice, wheat 2015
    FAO’s best-selling 2011 publication, Save and Grow, proposed a new paradigm of agriculture, one that is both highly productive and environmentally sustainable. This new book looks at the application of “Save and Grow” practices and technologies to production of the world’s key food security crops – maize, rice and wheat. With examples drawn from developing countries worldwide, it shows how eco-friendly farming systems are helping smallholder producers to boost cereal yields, improve their incomes and livelihoods, conserve natural resources, reduce negative impacts on the environment, and build resilience to climate change. The book will be a valuable reference for policymakers and development practitioners guiding the transition to sustainable food and agriculture.

    Save and grow: Cassava
    A guide to sustainable production intensification
    2013
    Also available in:

    This guide is the first on the practical application of FAO's Save and Grow model of agriculture to specific smallholder crops and farming systems. It comes as cassava production intensies worldwide, and growers shift from traditional cultivation practices to monocropping, higher-yielding genotypes, and greater use of agrochemicals. Intensication carries great risks, including soil nutrient depletion and upsurges in pests and diseases.The guide shows how ecosystem-based Save and Grow approaches and practices can help tropical developing countries to avoid the risks of unsustainable intensication, while realizing cassava's potential for producing higher yields, alleviating hunger and rural poverty, and contributing to national economic development.
