Agriculture uses up to 90% of all water consumed.
Agriculture already uses 80 to 90% of global water consumption.
Agriculture is the single largest source of water pollution. Fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides are found in nearly every lake, river, and ocean ecosystem.
Agriculture is the biggest source of water pollution affecting lakes, rivers and ocean including nitrogen & phosphates pollution.
When the global food system is considered as a whole, Agriculture is the single largest contributor of green house gas. More than worldwide transportation, more than worldwide electricity generation.
Agriculture is the largest single contributor of green house gas. § 35% of CO2, includes deforestations, methane emissions from animals & rice fields, oxides emissions from heavily fertilized fields.
One billion people are hungry. Yet about one third of calories produced in Agriculture are lost by the time they could have been consumed.
Agriculture is the biggest human use of land on the planet, It is estimated agriculture has already cleared 70% of the world’s prehistoric grasslands, 50% of the savannahs, 45% of the temperate deciduous forests & 25% of the tropical forests
By 2050, the world’s population will increase by 2 or 3 billion. At the same time, the rising billions will demand higher quality calories. To feed our population, food production must double without expanding footprint. We must do this in the next 36 years.
By 2050 world’s population will increase by 2 or 3 billion causing greater demand for food and changing dietary preferences for more meat & diary consumption.
Compounding the challenge of doubling food production, we have already used the best arable land on the planet.
Increasing food prices volatility, it is estimated that a bag of rice that costs a $1 today will cost $5.50 in 4 years and $41 in 2022.
