How to increase productivity, and how to produce quality output are the two important challenges in front of the Agriculture industry today, said Dr. KRK Reddy. As a result, there is a huge stress on the soil. The soil has lost its fertility. In another 30 years, by the year 2050, the major soils will be dead. By 2050, around 50% of the arable land would be salt-affected.
Quoting UN officials, Dr KRK Reddy said only 60 years of farming is left if soil degradation continues. Generating three centimetres of topsoil takes 1,000 years, and if current rates of degradation continue all of the world’s topsoil could be gone within 60 years.
Dr John Peter said one-third of usable land globally is consumed by agriculture. It is perceived generally that industries are producing a lot of pollution.
Ch. V. Srinivas said soil which is supposed to be like a sponge has become a brick. The world soil is on the ventilator.
While the whole world is talking about Bio-Agri, Natural Agriculture and Sustainability now, the founders of BIPA had the vision 19 years back the importance of the subject informed Raj Agarwal. (Maxim News)
