This technical paper is a review of eight intensified systems of land use on unirrigated farms in developing countries. The study proposes three complementary sets of conditions necessary for farming systems to be sustainable in the long run: public sector policies and investments; private farmers, their families, and institutions; and scientific principles, natural resource endowments, and ecological systems.
