Recommendations to promote agro-ecology

What is the common opinion on agro-ecology? As there is a misperception on agro-ecology, as it is associated with low-input agriculture and low-yields, Julia Wright, Deputy Director at the Centre for Agroecology and Food Security at Coventry University, highlighted the main points of action to challenge this thinking during the Oxford Real Farming Conference.
According to AgriCultures, Julia Wright recommended to promote agro-ecological literacy, making more information available and providing evidence about sustainable agriculture. Likewise, she stressed the importance of challenging the conventional agriculture mindset, as some people believe that maximizing yields is necessary to fighting hunger.
