To be considered sustainable a farming effort must be economically affordable, environmentally responsible and provide enough food for the community.
Yes, there are sustainable farm efforts in Brazil, Guatamala, Honduras, India, Kenya and many other countries. By adapting water managment technology, shifting use of pesticides to different remedies and using natural fertilizers and crop rotation to supplement the soil with nutrients, it can be fairly easy to increase production and make a farm sustainable.
One country that actually has some pretty sustainable agriculture is Cuba. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba kind of sat in ruin. The Soviets obviously had not helped the country one bit, however, the “iron fist” prevented them from being independent and trying methods to help themselves. To combat this Cuba had to get smart to survive. Wind power, sustainable fertilizer made from worms and cow dung, and the like became staples of the agriculture process.
