Changing pressures on the environment

Changing pressures on the environment Agriculture’s contribution to air pollution and climate   Public attention tends to focus on the more visible signs of agriculture’s impact on the environment,

 whereas it seems likely that the non-visible or less obvious impacts of air pollution cause the greatest economic costs.


 Agriculture affects air quality and the atmosphere in four main ways:
 particulate matter and GHGs from land clearance by fire (mainly rangeland and forest) and the burning of rice residues; methane from rice and livestock production; nitrous oxide from fertilizers and manure; and ammonia from manure and urine.

Pollution from biomass burning Soot, dust, and trace gases are released by biomass burning during the forest, bush, or rangeland clearance for agriculture.

Burning is traditionally practiced in “slash and burn” tropical farming, in the firing of savannah regions by pastoralists to stimulate forage growth and in the clearing of fallow land and disposing of crop …

Agriculture impact on the environment

Agriculture impact on the environment: Agriculture places a serious burden on the environment in the process of providing humanity with food and fibres.


 It is the largest consumer of water and the main source of nitrate pollution of groundwater and surface water, as well as the principal source of ammonia pollution.

It is a major contributor to the phosphate pollution of waterways (OECD, 2001a) and to the release of the powerful greenhouse gases (GHGs) methane and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere (IPCC, 2001a).

 Increasingly, however, it is recognized that agriculture and forestry can also have positive externalities such as the provision of environmental services and amenities, for example through water storage and purification, carbon sequestration, and the maintenance of rural landscapes.

 Moreover, research-driven intensification is saving vast areas of natural forest and grassland, which would have been developed in the absence of higher cr…

What is called the environment?definition- 
The word environment is taken from the French verb environner, which means to  “surround.” Thus, it can be called as the physical, chemical and biological world that surrounds us, as well as the complex of social and cultural conditions affecting an individual or community.

The biologist Jacob Van Uerkal (1864-1944) introduced the term ‘environment’ in Ecology. Ecology is the study of the relation between an organism of some kind and its environment.

 As given by Environment Protection Act 1986,  Environment is the sum of land ,water, air and inter relationships  with the humans beings and other living organisms. It is the science of physical phenomena.

 It studies relation between all on the earth.

 Environmental Science deals with the study of factors in soil like fossil fuel, water, air and organisms which lead pollution or environmental damages.

the scientific reason for the establishment of a standard is clean, safe and healthy for human beings a…
