Managing Our Environment, A Report on Ways Agricultural Research Fights Pollution.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC.
A report on the ways agricultural research attempts to fight pollution is presented in this series of articles covering some of the major challenges facing scientists and regulatory officials working in agricultural research. Improved resource management is stressed with the use of advanced technologies as the avenue to solving environmental problems. Although some of the tools to help manage our environment are available and others are being developed and tested, future research efforts should be directed toward providing new concepts and knowledge broad enough in scope to solve prospective as well as current environmental problems. To this end topics discussed in the articles suggest aspects of environmental management dealing with public safety to insure that food, water, and air will be free of harmful contaminants; recycling of food processing wastes; resource inventories utilizing present methods in conjunction with advanced techniques of remote sensing; and aesthetics. The booklet is an effort to encourage support of individuals struggling to preserve the quality of our environment. (BL)
