A Study on the Management of the Agricultural Waste


  • Yogesh Kumar K


Farming is oldest occupation for both India and the world. One of the main occupations, agriculture supports both secondary and territorial sectors. Farm which promotes growth of industries, for raw materials such as textile cotton, cigarette tobacco, etc., are considered agribusinesses. Agricultural waste is a byproduct of agriculture that may produce material that is beneficial to humans but has a lower economic value than the cost of collection, transportation, and handling for beneficial use. Farm waste projections are scarce, but it is widely assumed that it accounts for a significant percentage of the total waste throughout the developed world. Agricultural sector is often accompanied by the irrational use of intensive agricultural practices and chemical abuse in cultivation, which has a negative impact on rural communities and the climate system. Rural waste generates mainly through cultivation, livestock and aquaculture from a number of sources. The '3R' Waste Management Strategy currently utilizes these wastes for a number of applications. Agricultural Waste Management System (AWMS) has been discussed in this paper.  Agricultural waste has a toxicity potential in many direct and indirect channels for plants, animals and human beings. The environmental impacts and management of this toxic agricultural waste have also been discussed which will be helpful for the researchers and the students of agriculture to know about the management of the waste in detail.
