New Study Pushes Famers to Conserve Water

‘A new report released at a UN development summit in New York Tuesday warns that food production and agriculture are causing the rapid depletion of water resources across the world, advocating the cultivation of drought resistant and genetically modified crops to combat the crisis.”

” ‘Food and agriculture are by far the largest consumers of water. They require 1,000 times more than we use to drink and 100 times more than we use to meet basic personal needs,’ cautions the report titled ‘Water – More Nutrition Per Drop,’ initiated by the Swedish government.”
