About this book

Well illustrated and fully-referenced introduction to contemporary agricultural pollution issues in the UK. It provides a concise, yet comprehensive, overview of the environmental pollution caused by agriculture, offering a unique combination of clear scientific and technical understanding of the most important sources of agricultural pollution, with an understanding of: the general nature of agricultural production systems and their different relationships with the environment; the principles and practice of pollution control on farms, new technologies; statutory control and regulation; financial incentives within agri-environmental policy; and the emergence of `alternative' agricultural systems.
