The question really is not about the benefits of AE approach. Everyone seems to intuitively agree to the rhetoric of sustainable approaches. The question of comparing with organic is about market access thru niche certification. AE doesn’t allow any room for that. As for production is concerned, the excellent results often showcased in case studies is not homogenous and not every farmer in myriad of different conditions can replicate. @Martial As for rolling out policies are concerned, data on several key parameters are unavailable in AE approach and computation is difficult for large scale countries like India. For example biodiversity or resilience are very complex indexes. And for all benefits of AE, we are still waiting for evidence from the ground. The AE framework doesn’t seem to be able to accommodate data for policy level decision making. Meaning we are unable to predict socio-economic benefits for all the diversified AEZs.
