Ecological, social and community demands on agriculture

Ecological, social and community demands on agriculture

Archiv DLG ( 85): 36-39

Agriculture's roles in protecting and in damaging the natural environment are examined and the positive benefits it can provide are discussed. Non-renewable resources of fossil energy must cease to be used up, energy utilization be improved and renewable energy sources from the biomass be developed. The tax system should be reformed to encourage such ecological policies and efforts should be made to encourage biological diversity and ecological farming systems.
