Intensive farming or intensive agriculture is an agricultural production system characterized by the high inputs of capital, labour, or heavy usage of technologies such as pes…ticides and chemical fertilizers relative to land area.
Intensive farming of any kind is a business. An intensive chicken farm simply means that you raise as many birds for whatever purpose you intend, be it egg production or meat …production for the maximum profit. Intensive farming seems to have a bad reputation because many times health/safety and environmental concerns are overlooked to cut costs but that is not always true and the one's that work well you seldom hear about.
organic farming is where they don't use any chemicals as intensive farming does. . a better explanation: organic farming is where the farm uses is more environmentally frien…dly, but it makes a smaller yield is more expensive and takes up more space to make crops. intensive farming is better for cheaper food, more yield made, not that good for environment but don't need many workers or space.
Why would you want to? From Wikipedia: . Intensive agriculture has a number of benefits: . Significantly increased yield per acre, per person, and per dollar relative …to extensive farming and therefore, . Food becomes more affordable to the consumer as it costs less to produce. . The same area of land is able to supply food and fibre for a larger population reducing the risk of starvation. . Of course, the drain on the soil and water supply might make continuous farming a bit difficult, but that can be mitigated with the use of fertilizer and crop rotation.
it makes it smell bad.
the advaantages are that you can get eggs for cooking and you can kill the chicken for food
people have to do what they need to do when they do it for e.g..... playing on your IPAD makes the earths atmosphere turn 50 times in 1 sec
Intensive farming involves producing lots within a small area.Feedlot, chicken farming, dairy farming, and pig farming qualify as"intensive farming," but also much of the crop… production, likethat used to raise corn, wheat, canola and even rice, is intensivein itself because a lot is produced or raised in a small area, justlike with the aforementioned confined animal feeding operations. Feedlots, conventional chicken, dairy and hog farms, etc.
tough and brutal
Most of the people in the world eat potato and green beans. So green beans are intensively farmed all over the world
Hydroponic farming is a soiless type of farming which is usuallydone indoors. It can be organic or not. It's totally up to thosedoing the farming. For example: they may use pe…sticides or spray onfertilizer. In short hydroponic farming has nothing to do with if its organicor not.
Causes of intensive farming include: . Consumer demand . A desire to meet demands for meat by producing a lot of product in a limited amount of time . A need for profit …and income in agriculture . Ignorance or lack of knowledge about how to keep soil and plants healthy without chemical influence . Limited experience with conservative/sustainable farming methods . The belief that the acreage should always produce the highest yields at whatever "cost" to the health of the soil and plants . Limited acreage; limited space to farm
Intensive or conventional farming is favoured by food producers, as they get more money for more meat or crops. Also, it is generally favoured by customers as it is cheaper to… buy.
Intensive farming means large inputs (like labor and money) per amount of land, extensive farming means a low-input system with less labor and less expenses. In first world co…untries intensive agriculture is more common and therefore perhaps more "normal" than extensive agriculture. An example of an extensive dairy farm would be one where the cows are given no buildings or extra feed, only lots of land to roam around and eat on. This system would have less milk per cow, but it would also cost less to keep each cow. It would also require a lot of land to provide enough grass for the cows to eat. Lots of land, little input = extensive agriculture. An intensive dairy farm would have a barn for the cows and a small lot for exercise. The farmer would harvest both grasses and grains and bring them to the cows to eat. The barn would have the latest technology in fans, mattresses in the cow's stalls, etc. These cows would require less land, but they would cost a lot of money to feed them and to buy all the fancy equipment. They would also make more milk. More inputs, less land = intensive agriculture.
More food, feed, and fiber per unit area of production.
it is a type of farming where labour is not restricted and not too expensive
