Land HEI: Monoculture
Water HEI: Fertilizer Pollution
- Soil nutrients are degraded
- Soil Acidification
- Over Fertilization (Does Not Always Happen)
- Dead Zones
- Kills Animals
- Poisons Water Table
What the Future Holds
With increased use of monoculture there will be deserts created and deserts enlarged, unless farmers can learn how to treat the soil so they can use it over and over there will be deserts.
With the continued popularity of fertilizer more bodies of water will be affected and become "Dead Zones" in which no life can live. Though their is hope because there are many scientists working solve this problem, but until there is a solution there will be continued adding to the water pollution.
How is fertilizer pollution affecting water bodies around farms?
