Sustainable Farming - An introduction to Integrated Farm Management (IFM) ppt

Sustainable farming is all about taking a whole farm approach, using the best of modern techniques alongside tried and tested traditional methods. The LEAF model is called Integrated Farm Management (IFM) which is a site-specific farm business approach. The IFM wheel is made up of nine sections, which together address the entire farm business. Each of the nine sections is interrelated and an understanding of how they work together is essential for the effective implementation of IFM. Click on the LEAF link below each section to view videos of LEAF farmers explaining the different aspects of the IFM wheel to give a snapshot of sustainable farming in the UK today – produced with support from the Crop Protection Association.
