The letter by Mehrabi et al.  provides interesting insights regarding the scientific framework and attitudes needed to support farming approaches for greater biodiversity, livelihoods, and food security. In general, we do not see a dichotomy between our point of view  and that put forward by Mehrabi et al. . We share their view that the different farming systems we have described do not form distinct, non-overlapping categories. We do not seek to promote a binary choice between conventional and alternative farming.
