Considering the environmental crisis and situation today, it very important to make sure that we do whatever it takes to reduce the impact on the environment. No doubt, a lot of efforts and strategizing is done to take care of the situation, but there is still a long way to go.
With the natural resources decreasing at such a rapid pace, the need of the hour calls for effective solutions that can help in making it easier on the environment. Let us look at some of the astounding revelations studies and researches have shown us; based on the different analysis made on the information and data collected.
The alarming result that studies and research reveal
Over the years, scientist and researchers have been conducting various kinds of studies to understand the impact of the climatic conditions not just on the lives of human beings but also on agricultural crops as well. Unfortunately, the world is heading to a possibility of a global famine due to the simultaneous harvest failures over the past few years. This is because of the rapid change in climatic conditions. What is more devastating is that the extreme weather events can eventually hamper the production of food crops to such drastic levels that you cannot even imagine.
The quantifying risks seen especially in countries like US and China due to the present environmental situations are very scary. Already the threat of famine has hit some parts of the globe, which is not hidden to anybody worldwide. Well you can easily call this nature’s way of saying stop. Just because of human wants, nature is in fact paying the brunt of everything.
Pollution levels are not just increasing but it is actually going to an alarming rate due to its rapid growth. The pollution levels are also one of the major reasons why, over the past few years, we have seen drastic environmental changes. Our natural resources are being contaminated every second of the day. This is not just a threat to the environment and wildlife but invariably even humans will be paying the brunt of it in the near future.
Global health problems and crop disasters
Considering the global health problems are increasing rapidly, it is important that we should opt for food crops that provide various kinds of high quality nutrition, which is essential for our body’s immune system. In order to do this, it is essential that the agricultural industry use methods, which are effective and at the same time do not have side effects on the environment.
The crop disasters that are presently seen across the world are heart breaking. This directly does have a very negative impact on the overall production of agricultural products and harvests. The failure of harvest production is not just a risk to the environment but to humankind as well.
One of the major reasons why the global health problems are increasing is due to the consumption of agricultural products that contain a lot of chemicals. Apart from that, even the natural soils are contaminated due to environmental pollution. If we take care of this one factor, it’d be a great step towards controlling global health problem.
The solution lies in the hands of unique methods in agriculture
The growing problems truly calls for the need of the development of unique agricultural methods, which in turn can reduce the impact on the environment to prevent basic agricultural crops from getting hampered during the production process. Some of the ways of how this can be done would include:
Planting more plants so that the contaminated soil can be cleaned easily.
Restricting the use of chemical fertilizers and using natural ones.
Preventing or reducing biological waste from entering into the environment with effective recycling techniques and methodologies. This on its own can reduce the impact on the environment largely.
Using Silicon since it has various kinds of positive effects such as increasing the Biomass in plants. This also results in the high tolerance and hi and drought soil salinity. Catering to the different diseases that plants are exposed to or can get is also another way to tackle the situation. This is because the roots are directly affected due to the use of silicon, it strengthens them, and improves their overall condition.
