This book presents agroecosystem analysis as a methodology for dealing with the complex interactions of agriculture and environment. The first chapter discusses these linkages, and suggests that they should be understood as systems, whose analysis requires multidisciplinarity.
In contrast to farming systems research and integrated rural development approaches, the agroecosystem analysis. The outcome of the analyses is a set of agreed key questions for future research or alternatively a set of tentative guidelines for development.

There are many aspects to consider; however, it is literally impossible to account for all of them. This is one of the issues when trying to conduct an analysis of an agricultural environment.

Rural development is beset by a large number of problems, created by the link between agriculture and the environment. These problems are tackled by different approaches.
Here the approach of Agroecosystem Analysis and Development (AAD) is presented. This approach differs from Farming Systems Research (FSR) and Integrated Rural Development (IRD) in 2 important respects: (1) it can Cited by: Microeconomic analysis of diversification, embedded in standard economic theory, puts an emphasis on measuring the costs and benefits of diversification.
