Farming is a vital adaptation humans have made to support large populations of people. It is an ancient practice constantly changing over time. Today, up to 70% of water taken from rivers and groundwater goes to farming irrigation, and farming animals accounts for 65% of nitrous oxide emissions (Lenntech.com).
