Reduce the production of crops by reducing air pollution
Stanford: Scientists have said that the production of crops can be increased by 28 % by reducing air pollution.
Satellite images and other investigations in this regard have shown that if the notorious greenhouse gas, nitrogen dioxide is reduced in the atmosphere, it could increase crop production by 28 %.
Professor David Lobel, a scientist at the University of Stanford, said that in China alone, the emissions of nitrogen dioxide somehow reduced by 5 % can increase by 28 %. In this way, a deep connection between nitrogen dioxide and the crop has been discovered.
David says that the atmosphere of large areas of agriculture in China increases the extraordinary amount of nitrogen dioxide. This hazardous gas affects the fields and crops. The first nitrogen is dioxide phytotoxin that directly destroys plant cells. Secondly, it helps to create other harmful ingredients, which destroys plants.
For further research, Professor David and his colleagues saw satellite images in the United States, China, Western Europe and South America and closely reviewed them from 2018 to 2020 and saw the data.
The green color in the pictures was interpreted as better crops. The presence of nitrogen dioxide was reviewed in the atmosphere of these areas of the world with pictures of crop. It should be noted that the gas was noted on the basis of its properties, which is also an interacted reactivation gas.
Experts found that more vegetables and better crops were noted in areas where nitrogen dioxide was low. However, the result is that in China alone, the amount of nitrogen dioxide can be reduced by 5 % and the production of winter crops can be increased by 2 % and summer crops can be increased by 17 %.
Similarly, if Western Europe and India reduce the amount of nitrogen dioxide, respectively, it is possible to increase the grain by 10 % and 6 % respectively.
The European Space Agency, on the other hand, has launched a satellite for research on nitrogen only in the atmosphere, which will note the amount of ammonia and nitrogen dioxide on the planet.
