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 d

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). what is the environment - click here  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

Impact of coronavirus on our environment

Hello friends and welcome all of you to the agricultural information, today we are talking about the impact of coronavirus on our environment . a very important topic which is very much discussed these days, yes Coronavirus COVID-19 - Covid-19: The history of pandemics which has engulfed the whole world, due to impact of coronavirus on our environment which  All of us have remained closed in our homes, friends, this global epidemic has taken a lot of lives, not knowing how many people have killed this global epidemic and  It is also difficult to say how long this will wreak havoc on all of us. our scientists are working very hard and the vaccine of Kovid-19 is being made, it has been used in some places or hopefully soon.  Will be available and we will all be able to overcome this global epidemic.  then friends, let us return to our topic for which I am talking to you today about the impact of coronavirus on environment changes in the environment caused by the coronaviru
