Abstract

This paper explores the correlation between small farmers' market integration and sustainability within the eco-economy and agroecology framework. Local dynamics of market inclusion and sustainability promotion are analyzed to comprehend their impact on farming practices, sustainable approaches, and local extension services. Findings reveal a tension between sustainability goals and the emergence of a green revolution model reliant on agrochemicals for productivity. The study underscores the significance of preserving local farming knowledge and practices, and supporting extension officers to fortify the food system during the sustainability transition.
