4125. Matheson, Nancy (ed.). 1989. AERO's guide to sustainable agriculture in the northern Rockies and Plains.. Alternative Energy Resources Organization.
AERO's survey in 1988 of farmers and ranchers practicing sustainable agriculture resulted in a demographic profile of these farmers and identified their management goals and the practices that they found successful. Their operations tend to be moderately sized for the region and include both crops and livestock. Farmers identified specific practices or techniques they are using or have used, and the farm management goals being met. The goals most frequently mentioned were soil fertility and soil conservation, closely followed by crop yield and quality, pest control, water conservation, and reducing inputs or costs.
