      <Nevertheless, that there has always been a conflict between farming and nature is an open secret. Why is that? At macro level, there is the competition for land. Forestlands, grazing lands, wildlife habitats, wetlands commonly give way, to a smaller or greater degree, to farming. This is mainly because of population pressure.
      At micro level, every farming becomes an ecological sacrifice. >

      i appreciated this article explaining the root of the problem being in our way of thinking farming rather than specific technics used .

      i see this specialisation in landscape and compettion for use as the problem, may be even a cause for overpopulation.( allowing artificial high yields temporarelly).

      there is a way of meeting our needs where food productive lands are at the same time forests ,grazing lands , wildlife habitat , wetland , gardens and habitat for humans ( or humane habitat) . no separation !
