  • WasteReuse: Towards a Sustainable Use of Agricultural Waste

    The pollution potential of agricultural wastes is high on a long-term basis. Their disposal may affect natural resources such as surface and ground waters, soil and crops, as well as human health. Organic materials such as agricultural and forestall residues have been utilized for years in many countries for fertilizing and maintaining or improving the productivity and fertility of their agricultural soils. The gradual replacement in the past of organic wastes by chemical fertilizers and the failure to implement effective soil conservation practices had resulted in many countries in extensive degradation of the agricultural soils and in decline of productivity. The WasteReuse Forum will provide briefing on latest research results and practical experiences regarding the sustainability of agricultural and organic waste types to be reused in farming.
