Agricultural Wastes : Characteristics, Types & Management Hardback
Edited by Camille N. Foster
Agricultural wastes (AW) can be defined as the residues from the growing and processing of raw agricultural products such as fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, dairy products and crops.
Agricultural wastes can be in the form of solid, liquid or slurries depending on the nature of agricultural activities.
Furthermore, agricultural industry residues and wastes constitute a significant proportion of worldwide agricultural productivity.
Although the quantity of wastes produced by the agricultural sector is significantly low compared to wastes generated by other industries, the pollution potential of agricultural wastes is high on a long-term basis.
This book discusses the characteristics, types and management options for agricultural wastes.
