How does pollution hurt plant growth?



  1. 0 Votes

    Plants need good soil and clean water to feed their roots, and clean air to perform photosynthesis and produce oxygen. Once these two elements become polluted, it will consequently affect the proper growth of the plant. Acid in the rain from pollution will damage the roots of plants and wash out the necessary nutrients that plants need to flourish. Pesticides used in soil is defeating, because in addition to killing pests, it also kills tiny organisms that often assist the plant and growth. This in turn changes the constitution of the soil and affects it’s ability to retain water and other nutrients it naturally receives from the environment. Pollution pretty much alters the natural make-up of the environment and therefore causes the natural cycle of growth to be interrupted in many aspects.
