Is it Possible to Find a Third Way Between "Green Revolution" and Traditional Systems of Agriculture?

Traditional systems of agriculture still feed millions of people in tropical countries. There is probably a superior limit to their yield potentials, especially in over-populated situations. However, many things can be learned about the biological mechanisms which explain their productivity, and perhaps it is possible to imagine ameliorated systems in which productivity would be ameliorated by minimal inputs of chemical aid, and adequate plant breeding.
