Before delving deep in to the topic, what is commercial farming?
Commercial farming involves farming for a profit. The farmer is growing crops or rearing animals to sell for as much money as possible. These farms can be arable (just growing crops), pastoral (just rearing animals) or mixed. Foods produced tend to involve advanced technological means for sale in the market.
There are many forms of commercial farming. They can include farming on land such as high-tech farming/ agro technology, plantation agriculture, organic farming and even farming in the seas and rivers such as in the case of aqua farming.
The subsequent posts to come in the blog will look at each forms of commercial farming, and how they pollute the environment. When possible, the posts will include findings on how the environmental pollution caused by commercial farming can adversely affect human health.
