Sustainable intensification? Could you add some color to what that means?

Hi Mark,  
This paper describes it well: "Sustainable intensification (SI) is defined as a process or system where agricultural yields are increased without adverse environmental impact and without the conversion of additional non-agricultural land. The concept does not articulate or privilege any particular vision or method of agricultural production.  
Rather, it emphasizes ends rather than means, and does not pre-determine technologies, species mix or particular design components."

Thanks Wendy! First time I had seen the term, and now I know it.
