Increased productivity, the "always more modern" in the agricultural sector has affected the natural resources and the threat today is to sacrifice these technical innovations at the altar of sustainable development. What can be done? The author of this essay urges us to look elsewhere, towards China, India, Brazil and West Africa. He describes local experiences in these regions of the world.
So that everyone can form his own opinion, the scientist also analyses the role of GMOs, the use of pesticides and the gradual marginalisation of poor farmers. It is often important to be wary of taking too simplistic a view, he tells us, a direct inspiration from ideological bias.
