How much pollution is caused by the agriculture industry?

    Pollutants caused by agricultural practices are:  nutrients (mostly nitrogen and phosphorus), animal wastes, pesticides, salts, and sediments.  The feed, grain, that livestock eat furthers the pollution and makes it even more complicated.  Most of the water that is utilized is for agriculture, as well.

    Well, animal waste isn’t really pollution because its biodegradable and turns into nutrients for soil. Also, when considering pollution caused by the agriculture industry, you should be sure to factor in CO2 that was absorbed by plants that were grown for agricultural purposes
