Multiple approaches have been utilized by these organizations to address these challenges and to date the two most significant are technological and scientific methods advancement. Challenges Faced By Agriculture Industry Increasing global population and urbanization are threatening food production security. Agriculture needs to operate in a sustainable fashion “where food is produced on the same amount of arable land using less resources” (Husaini and Tuteja, 2013, p.1). In addition, the changing climate conditions add to the challenges faced by both the farming and agriculture bio... ... middle of paper ... ...raits from discovery to field at a faster rate. Conclusion To fulfill the growing needs of world's rapidly expanding population in a sustainable manner, crop growers must employed different approaches.
The industries develop and demand fuel helped population growth to reproduce more of world industrial. This where led to oil and mineral used and humans keep burning the environment with the bad air around. Humans used mineral in day basic about 80% as world wild. As 20% of the minerals are used by world's population. The big cities are very dependent from other fuel sources and also untenable improvement by 16% of the population lives without basic comforts objects.
Other global environmental impacts from industrial agriculture include soil erosion, salinization and water logging from irrigation, surface and groundwater contamination from pesticides and fertilizers, and the loss of cultural and biological diversity. The second phase is accelerating these unsustainable trends and is creating a global industrial food system that is highly fossil fuel intensive not only in the production sector, but in processing and distribution – where the average food item is more highly processed, more heavily packaged, and transported increasing distances. By contributing to increasing economic and social inequities at both national and international levels, this system also increases the risks of social instability. The need for more sustainable and socially just food and agricultural systems is clear.
Rise in human population can cause problems such as pollution and congestion; these might be resolved or worsened by technological and economic changes. Over the last 100 years we have seen a fast increase in population due to medical advances and massive increase in agricultural productivity. The major fear is that high population numbers are putting a burden on natural resources, food supplies, and more. Human growth population has major pros and cons to the world we live in. Population growth is the increase in the number of people who inhabit a territory or state with the equation of (B-D)+(I-E) where (B) is births, (D) is deaths, (I) is immigration rate, and (E) is emigration rate.
Although many argue that growing genetically modified foods can ruin the environment and ecosystem indefinitely, it is also undeniable that genetically modified foods is beneficial for the environment and the society. “At the end of the 18th century, Reverent Thomas Malthus predicted...that food supply could not keep up with exponentially rising population growth” (Halford “Genetically” 12). One of the major challenges in developed and developing countries is being able to produce food with minimum usage of land. The expected increase of the world’s population, and in lost of arable land reduced by land degradation and climate will expand the food gap in many countries. The urgent need for food will increase in the coming decade.
From now until then, we will have to produce more food than what humanity has consumed in its entire existence (Weisman 2013). Most of this demand will come from developing countries. As their economies grow, not only will these countries be able to afford more food, their preferences will also shift towards more meat, dairy, and processed foods, all of which require disproportionately large inputs and the use of intense agricultural practices to produce (Trostle and Seeley 2013). Paradoxically, modern agriculture is both the blessing that provided us with the abundant food that allowed us to flourish, and the curse that will lead to our collapse if left unchecked. Moreover, our agricultural practices are both shaped by and shapers of our environment.
Recently, technology has been accelerating at an enormous rate much faster then it was in the past. It has become common today to dismiss the uncertainties of many people who believe that technology is advancing at a rate, which will lead to many problems as well as the downfall of humanity. It is shown that technology is helping humanity advance in many ways such as medical purposes, harvesting food, helping predict natural disasters, explaining much of the world and ultimately making humanities lives much easier and enjoyable. The evolution of technology was first helping humanity advance in every field but now that technology has become a business it raises a lot of questions and it’s effecting every aspect of life, we are wasting materials, creating pollution, and taking away jobs from the people who need them and some believe this will lead to the downfall of humanity. The question that many people are wondering lately is whether or not the latest advances in technology revolution will help humanity prosper or will it eventually lead to our downfall.
Greenhouse masses Each year, since the 1800's, the human population of Earth has been increasing at an exponential rate. Overpopulation acts as a root cause of numerous ecological problems that humanity faces today. The number of people on earth directly relates to the amount of food, water, and space that exist in short supply. Scientists worry that the amount of resources that the world has to offer will not suffice for its swelling human population. Exemplified by Soylent Green, a 1973 American science fiction film directed by Richard Fleischer, overpopulation poses as a cancer that saps potency from the planet's environment and its inhabitants.
￼ Such an increase will bring about an overwhelmingly large usage of the planets resources. This result could bring about massive destruction for humans, animals and the planet. With solutions to the ever growing population increase, reducing our population to a sustainable level will ensure that all species that inhabit planet earth will have a chance to survive. Solutions to maintaining world population will decrease overcrowding and human poverty. “Solutions to sustaining population growth include: education which warns people about the effects of overpopulation, family planning, sex-education, and health care.
After paraphrasing the text, the reader can define the term “civilization” as something representing a new type of society due to the high rate of productivity caused by Agricultural Revolution. Along with this newfound “civilization” came positive and negative effects that affected the way the society grew (or diminished). Every society has its on issues, specifically speaking, within this time period, sexism, slavery, illness, degradation of the environment, and economic inequality. Inequality seemed to be based on the same terms of to... ... middle of paper ... ...dernized versions that our culture has evolved into were primarily based on those that are considered original. Over the millennia, we have learned to adapt and work around what was set before us to emerge into a dynamic and vastly growing civilization.
