tal costs from our present industrial crop production practices: their foodprint is unsustainable. The good news is that, since the 1940s, farmers, scientists and public interest organizations have been working together to create an alternative, sustainable, organic food system that eschews the . use of synthetic, toxic pesticides and fertilizers. Organic agriculture enhances nature’s ...

Soil Health is Affected by Industrial Agriculture FoodPrint

As industrial crop production has escalated during the last 50 years, so has the application of synthetic fertilizers (mainly produced from fossil fuels) to boost plant productivity, in part. Industrial farming practices, such as monocropping and intensive tillage, have also compromised soil health over time. Some research has found that synthetic nitrogen fertilizer application decreases soil ...

Biodiversity and Agriculture FoodPrint

Read More About Industrial Crop Production. A number of innovations allowed for widespread intensification of agriculture throughout the twentieth century. Widespread adoption of steel plows, hybrid seeds, GMOs, chemical fertilizers and pesticides helped farmers produce more food per acre than ever before. More recently, the adoption of genetically modified seeds helped to increase yields even ...

Carbon footprinting of crop production - Hutton

• Potato footprint per hectare around 20-30% higher than WW or OSR • Potato footprint per tonne yield much lower than WW or OSR • N application is by far the most important arable farming emission source (for these crops) • Transport emissions can be very significant beyond the farm gate adding ~50% per 500 km for potato

The Water Footprint of Food FoodPrint

Growing and processing crops and livestock consumes large quantities of water; therefore, the water footprint of food is high. Animal products, especially, like meat, dairy and eggs (all of which tend to require more water than fruits, vegetables and beans) have an even higher water footprint. Individually speaking, one’s diet makes up the largest part of one’s personal water footprint ...

HOEKSTRA FOR CROP PRODUCTION - water footprint

Water footprint benchmarks for crop production can be an instrument to compare actual water footprints in certain regions or even at field level to certain reference levels and can form a basis to formulate water footprint reduction targets, aimed to decrease water consumption and pollution per unit of crop (Hoekstra, 2013a, 2013b). The water footprint of crops varies enormously across regions ...

17/09/2021  The production of arable crops, including cereals and oilseeds, contributes to farm greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, primarily through the use of artificial nitrogen fertilisers and cultivation choices. Currently, there is no standard for measuring GHG emissions in crop production, which makes it difficult for those further up the supply chain to quantify the agricultural contribution to their ...

Environmental impacts of food production - Our World in Data

Indeed, energy, whether in the form of electricity, heat, transport or industrial processes, account for the majority – 76% – of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. 11 But the global food system, which encompasses production, and post-farm process such as processing, and distribution is also a key contributor to emissions.
