We often have nice things said about our books, including some excellent book reviews, but few come better than this and from such an important figure in global agriculture. We thought we'd share an extract from the foreword taken from our soon to be published two volume collection on Conservation Agriculture, edited by the world's renowned authority on the subject, Professor Amir Kassam from the University of Reading, UK. 
 
Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organiszation (FAO), Qu Dongyu says about the book, 
 
"This edifying book is a compendium of much of what we have learnt across the world about CA... It will serve as an immensely valuable source of reference – and inspiration - for all those who are committed to putting the world’s food systems on a truly sustainable footing. It is with great pleasure, therefore, that I commend this book to you."
