Agronomy for Sustainable Development is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering research on the interactions between cropping systems and other activities in the context of sustainable development. It is a journal of the French Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (French National Institute for Agricultural Research) and is published on their behalf by Springer Science+Business Media.
