6 problems with intensification

  1. 1. geography of food problems due to intensifying food production
  2. 2. due to Irrigation
  3. 3. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl
  4. 4. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging
  5. 5. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging

  7. 7. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Euthrophication
  8. 8. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication

  17. 17. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication
  18. 18. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging
  19. 19. Water from irrigation has salts Crops
  20. 20. Water from irrigation has salts Crops
  21. 21. Water from irrigation has salts Crops
  22. 22. Salts are carried into the soil by water. Salts are left behind after water dries up.
  23. 23. Salts are carried into the soil by water. Salts are left behind after water dries up.
  24. 24. More irrigated water = more salts brought in
  25. 25. More irrigated water = more salts brought in
  26. 26. As the water dries up, more salts are left behind.
  27. 27. As the water dries up, more salts are left behind.
  28. 28. Over time, the too much salt accumulates in the soil, and the soil becomes salinised. This prevents the crops from growing.
  29. 29. Over time, the too much salt accumulates in the soil, and the soil becomes salinised. This prevents the crops from growing.
  30. 30. Over time, the too much salt accumulates in the soil, and the soil becomes salinised. This prevents the crops from growing.
  31. 31. Cross-section of a an area that is salinised. The white crystals are salts!
  32. 32. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging
  33. 33. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging = Soil has too much water
  34. 34. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging = Soil has too much water
  35. 35. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging = Soil has too much water Not enough air in soil for crops to grow
  36. 36. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication
  37. 37. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication
  38. 38. due to Chemicals Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication

  40. 40. Farmers tend to apply too much fertilisers Excess fertilisers gets washed into rivers and lakes by rain Excess nutrients in rivers and lakes due to fertilisers Encouraged the growth of algae
  41. 41. Excessive algae
  42. 42. Excessive algae
  43. 43. Excessive algae
  44. 44. Farmers tend to apply too much fertilisers Excess fertilisers gets washed into rivers and lakes by rain Excess nutrients in rivers and lakes due to fertilisers Encouraged the growth of algae Algae block the sunlight and compete for oxygen
  45. 45. Farmers tend to apply too much fertilisers Excess fertilisers gets washed into rivers and lakes by rain Excess nutrients in rivers and lakes due to fertilisers Encouraged the growth of algae Algae block the sunlight and compete for oxygen Plants at the bottom of rivers and lakes are unable to survive --> Die
  46. 46. Farmers tend to apply too much fertilisers Excess fertilisers gets washed into rivers and lakes by rain Excess nutrients in rivers and lakes due to fertilisers Encouraged the growth of algae Algae block the sunlight and compete for oxygen Plants at the bottom of rivers and lakes are unable to survive --> Die Plants then decomposes, removing more oxygen from the water, making it difficult for other animals to survive.
  47. 47. due to Chemicals Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication
  48. 48. humus = black stuff in soil
  49. 49. humus = decomposed organic material (plants, animals etc.)
  50. 50. humus = provides a variety of nutrients in soil humus
  51. 51. humus = provides a variety of nutrients in soil humus
  52. 52. humus = provides a variety of nutrients in soil humus
  53. 53. soil with humus soil without humus
  54. 54. humus = provides a variety of nutrients in soil
  55. 55. plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  56. 56. plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  57. 57. plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  58. 58. but chemical fertilisers only replace Nitrogen and Phosphorus
  59. 59. but chemical fertilisers only replace Nitrogen and Phosphorus
  60. 60. N N but chemical fertilisers only replace Nitrogen and Phosphorus
  61. 61. N N P P but chemical fertilisers only replace Nitrogen and Phosphorus
  62. 62. N N P P
  63. 63. N N P P
  64. 64. N N P P plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  65. 65. N N P P plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  66. 66. N N P P plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  67. 67. N N P P plants absorb a variety of nutrients
  68. 68. N N P P Soil left with a lot of Nitrogen and Phosphorus, but not other nutrients.
  69. 69. N N P P Soil left with a lot of Nitrogen and Phosphorus, but not other nutrients.
  70. 70. N N P P Soil left with a lot of Nitrogen and Phosphorus, but not other nutrients.
  71. 71. N N P P nutrients in soil becomes imbalanced
  72. 72. N N P P nutrients in soil becomes imbalanced
  73. 73. N N P P nutrients in soil becomes imbalanced
  74. 74. before - a variety of nutrients
  75. 75. N N P P after - only a few kind of nutrients.
  76. 76. problems due to intensifying food production
  77. 77. due to Irrigation
  78. 78. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl
  79. 79. due to Irrigation SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging
  80. 80. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging
  81. 81. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients
  82. 82. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Euthrophication
  83. 83. due to Irrigation due to Chemicals SalinisationNaCl Waterlogging Imbalance of soil nutrients Water Pollution Euthrophication
  84. 84. Answer this question at m.socrative.com now (room 9382) 1) Explain how the use of chemical fertilisers lead to soils having an imbalance of nutrients Things to explore if you're done: http://livingheritage.org/green-revolution.htm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lg9-HTtgFOk
