Environmental Concerns Surrounding Plastics Use in Agriculture

Plastics play a significant role in agriculture, serving various purposes like coating seeds and mulch film. They have contributed to enhanced crop yields, but there's a growing body of evidence suggesting that as plastics degrade, they contaminate the soil, negatively affecting biodiversity and soil quality. This, in turn, can result in decreased productivity and pose potential threats to both long-term food security and the environment. While efforts are underway to enhance the manufacturing and handling of plastic-containing agricultural products, it is also essential to explore a broader approach to food production, including nature-based solutions.
