Impact of Agriculture on Biodiversity and Soil Regeneration

11 mins 44 secs

Overview

The Agricultural Revolution ushered in an explosion of growth in food production. This started in the UK in the 18-19th centuries, which introduced new management techniques to increase production, along with the Haber-Bosch process, which developed a method for producing synthetic ammonia. But this has come at the cost of biodiversity, nutrition and soil health. Healthy soil is central to a sustainable and healthy food production system and also represents one of the largest opportunities related to carbon in farming.

Key learning objectives:

  • Learn how agricultural production has developed

  • Identify the impact of agricultural production on climate and biodiversity

  • Understand the importance of soil
