How many people does synthetic fertilizer feed?

Predictions of a global food crisis — that the world’s food production would not be able to keep pace with population growth — have a long history. In the 18th century the English cleric Thomas Robert Malthus hypothesized that gains in per capita resources would inevitably be outstripped by population until food supplies finally acted as a barrier to further growth.1

Is organic really better for the environment than conventional agriculture?

Our World in Data presents the empirical evidence on global development in entries dedicated to specific topics. This blog post draws on data and research discussed in our entry on Yields and Land Use in Agriculture, and Fertilizers and Pesticides. This post was first published on October 19th 201

By Yvette Tan Rolly Ladaya, proprietor of Juliana’s Cattle and Goat Farm in San Jose, Batangas, switched from vegetable farming to raising cattle about five years ago. Four years later, he started raising goats as well. Raising Cattle, Raising Goats, Vegetable Farming, Goat Farming, Off The Grid News, Pseudo Science, Habitat Destruction, Beef Cattle, Dirt Cheap

How Planting Crops Used to Feed Livestock is Contributing to Habitat Destruction

According to the World Wildlife Fund, “around 50 percent of the world’s habitable land has been converted to farming land.”

Discuss the importance of soil fertility and the appropriate use of fertilization.

Most of the time, the average person treats the soil "like dirt". A wise farmer/rancher will care for the soil because he knows that man is dependent on the top 6 inches (15.2 centimeters) of soil. In the plant-animal-soil continuum, soil is often neglected because it does not indicate stress in an obvious way. Animals and plants show physical symptoms but the soil must be looked at more carefully to monitor good health. Soil that is rich in nutrients is fertile. The expectation of growing…
