Sustainable Crop Production
- 1 Post
Sustainable crop production refers to the way of growing food in an ecological and ethical manner, which involves sticking to agricultural and food production practices that do not harm the environment, treat employees fairly, and help sustain local communities. Currently, crop production relies on mono-cropping (the process of growing one crop in a large plot of land), intensive use of commercial fertilizers, the heavy use if pesticides, and other products that are damaging the environment, communities, and agricultural employees. Through sustainable crop production the industry can produce more yields over time without needing to waste millions of dollars on harmful chemicals and environmental clean-up.
