Sustainable Agricultural Practices The development of sustainable agricultural practices depends largely on promoting long term fertility and productivity of soil at economically viable levels through, for example: Matching the supply of soil nutrients with nutrient demands of crop, fodder and pasture plants: through optimising return of crop residues and animal wastes to the land and through greater reliance on biologically fixed and recycled nutrients, and judicious use of mineral fertilisers; Maintaining acceptable pest tolerance levels: through reliance on crop rotations and biocontrol agents and hence reducing or maintaining low pesticide use; Maintaining soil physical properties conducive to plant growth and to soil ecosystem functioning (aeration, water infiltration and retention, nutrient availability, etc.) through decreasing or maintaining low frequency and intensity of tillage and reducing erosion and leaching. (...) Bacteria based food webs play a greater role in conventionally tilled soils, especially in the tilled layer, and as a result of more intense oxidation, may lead to greater organic matter loss and subsequent lower nutrient retention. Fungal based food webs are more important in no-till systems, which influence nutrient availability and soil aggregate stability and tend to increase N retention and reduced leaching. (...) That is the situation in vast areas of sub-Saharan African savannas. Nutrient mining was so intense in the last decennia’s (Smaling et al 1997) that these 'non-responsive' soils (Vanlauwe et al., 2010) need to be replenished with external nutrients.

They may be major constituents (fats, proteins, carbohydrates as nutrients or enzyme inhibitors as anti-nutrients) or minor compounds (minerals, vitamins). (...) The use of plant breeding, including in vitro nucleic acid techniques, to change nutrient levels in crops can result in broad changes to the nutrient profile in two ways. (...) Some food plants serve as the major source of a particular nutrient in some populations. The nutrient and the populations affected should be identified. 53.

REPORT OF THE FOURTH SESSION OF THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL REVIEW MEETING ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE GLOBAL PROGRAMME OF ACTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT FROM LAND-BASED ACTIVITIES
Other representatives of the secretariat provided additional background information on the work of the Global Partnership on Marine Litter, the Global Partnership on Nutrient Management and the Global Wastewater Initiative. (...) Agree to continue work on: (a) Enhancing the mainstreaming of the protection of coastal and marine ecosystems, especially from the environmental threats caused by increased nutrients, wastewater, and marine litter and microplastics; (b) Enhancing capacity-building, know-how and knowledge sharing through collaboration and partnerships involving governments, the private sector, civil society and experts at the regional and global levels in the protection of coastal and marine ecosystems from land-based activities and sources of pollution; 2. Note that the follow-up work of the Global Programme of Action should include, subject to future discussions on the form and implications: (a) Continued efforts relating to the three pollution streams – nutrients, wastewater and marine litter and microplastics from land-based sources – in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a framework for sustainable development; (b) Strengthening of the Global Partnership on Marine Litter, the Global Partnership on Nutrient Management and the Global Wastewater Initiative, as well as the interlinkages between the partnerships; (c) Improvement of the coordination, engagement and support of the work with Member States on land-based pollution, and fostering of linkages with the Regional Seas Programme and other relevant platforms and international initiatives for effective delivery; (d) Continued efforts to combat pollution from nutrients, wastewater, and marine litter and microplastics from land-based sources in an integrated manner, and the inclusion of the land/sea and freshwater/seawater interfaces in action plans for addressing marine litter, wastewater and nutrients; (e) Encouragement of the exchange of information, practical experiences and scientific and technical expertise through cooperative and collaborative action and partnership among governmental institutions and organizations, communities, the private sector and non-governmental organizations having relevant responsibilities and/or experience; 3.
