The goal of the method is long term sustainability on a closed system basis. It is particularly effective for backyard gardeners and smallholder farmers in developing countries. Intensive agriculture, also known as intensive farming (as opposed to extensive farming) and industrial agriculture, is a type of agriculture, both of crop plants and of animals, with higher levels of input and output per cubic unit of agricultural land area.

It is characterized by a low fallow ratio, higher use of inputs such as capital and labour, and higher crop yields per unit land area. ‘Nor is a return to ‘primitive’ farming practices the only alternative to factory farming and highly intensive agriculture.’ ‘Like intensive power production, so intensive agriculture spares the landscape.’ ‘The location of participation across the state, as expected, closely follows the areas of intensive commercial agricultural.

The management of K in the temperate region, where soils normally have nonexchangeable K reserves, high effective cation exchange capacity (CEC), and K fixation, has been extensively studied. In highly weathered soils with low CEC and essentially no available K reserves, exchangeable K + levels are low and incapable of maintaining intensive.Intensive agriculture was developed in order to produce greater amounts of food for large populations.
