Ecological intensification of agricultural practices can be a minimum input agriculture with a maximum utilization of the epigenetic potential for a maximum output.
The application of Quantitative Population Epigenetics as a catalyst for sustainable agriculture offers earning opportunities (market segments or business cases) for the existing players in the high-input agriculture in terms of win-win.
For example, agriculture is a major factor in eutrophication of surface waters. By using epigenetically active compounds to switch on yield or stress genes, new crop varieties for low-input agriculture could be developed to improve nitrogen and water use efficiency for cereal production significantly.
