China’s Ministry of Agriculture Urges Farmers to Do More to Address Water and Soil Pollution

The government wants to promote the use of waste management systems at livestock farms and to try to reduce pollution from plastic films, as well as promote biodegradable products as an alternative.

Farmers use 2.5 million tons of sheeting a year to prevent moisture evaporation and for weed control but the plastic is often left doing damage to the soil, water and animal health.

China is also targeting more efficient irrigation and recycling of straws left after harvesting for use as mulch, animal feed and biomass.
