Agricultural Waste is a term that refers to waste produced from various farming activities, including both natural and non-natural wastes such as waste from dairy farming, harvest waste, seed growing, market gardens, nursery plots, woodlands, batteries, clinical waste, old machinery, oil, packaging waste and even pesticides that enter into water, air or soils. It has variously been estimated that these agricultural wastes can account for economically productive resources.
Today, most of the agriculture sectors are getting benefits from a revolutionary fuel technology by converting agricultural waste streams into valuable biofuel and green chemical products. Recycling, reprocessing, and utilization of the agricultural wastes in a positive manner not only reduce the waste management problem, but also plays an important role in maintaining a healthy environment for farm animal as well as for fertilizer by providing efficient nutrients that are needed for crop production.
If agriculture waste is not managed properly, it can pollute the environment, results in loss of aesthesis. Also, it will effect waterways and groundwater both onsite and offsite. This will further degrade the ability of this resource to support aquatic life.
Benefits of Agricultural Waste
The reuse of animals waste can reduce the hauling costs of commercial fertilizer. This will increase the organic matter content of soils that will improve water holding capacity and increases nutrient availability for crops. Good waste management minimizes surface water pollution and water contamination.
