SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION OF COTTON

David Zilberman, University of California

There is a growing interest about the overall impact of agricultural production systems on the economy, natural resources, and the environment. Researchers and the public are interested in the extent to which agricultural production affects water quality, air pollution, and resource availability for future generations. By developing an analytical framework that will consider the multi-dimensional effects of cotton production systems, comparisons about the different methods of production, in terms of the long-term effects can be evaluated. This research on sustainability encompasses two frontiers: continuation of developing indicators of sustainability associated with cotton production and looking at the notion of sustainability within the context of the bioeconomy.
