Title: Agricultural production and nutrition
Contributors: William Lockeretz, editor
Published: Medford, MA : Tufts University School of Nutrition Science and Policy , 1997

Summary: Proceedings of an international conference held in Boston, March 19-21, 1997. This conference was held to explore what is known and not known about the nutritional consequences of producing (as opposed to processing and distributing) food one way or another. Although alternative production was not the entire focus of the conference, several papers discuss aspects of alternative production such as reduced pesticide use, IPM, organic fertilizers, organic and biodynamic cultivation, and consumer demand for organic foods in China among others. Other papers implied criticism of conventional food production systems.
