Sustainable agriculture as defined by Congress is "an integrated system of plant and animal production practices having a site-specific application that will over the long term:
  • satisfy human food and fiber needs;
  • enhance environmental quality and the natural resource base upon which the agricultural economy depends;
  • make the most efficient use of nonrenewable resources and on-farm resources and integrate, where appropriate, natural biological cycles and control; 
  • sustain the economic viability of farm operations; and 
  • enhance the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole.
