In order to stop the soy industry’s global expansion, the government needs to tackle the root cause of the problem: the loss of forests.
The deforestation crisis is caused by deforestation, an unregulated practice in which land is cleared for plantations and intensive farming.
According to WWF, over the last two decades, soy production in the world has grown from 10% to 40%.
This is largely due to the increase in use of agrofuels and the increasing popularity of soy in many countries.
According to a recent report from the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), soy production worldwide is now estimated to have reached 5,200 million tonnes, of which more than 60% is currently used for soyfoods.
The remaining 10% is being produced for human consumption, such as meat, milk and cheese.
The most obvious solution to the deforestation crisis, according to some, is to stop using soy.
While the problem of soy deforestation has become a major international issue, it is also an issue that can be solved in India, says a former director of the FAO.
The country’s soy production is largely dependent on monocultures, which are large plantations that are typically located in rural areas.
These are large monoculture plantations that grow on soybeans.
While soybeans can be used for a wide range of products, such that soy flour, soy sauce, soy protein powder and soy protein concentrate can be made, monocul- tures are usually used for agriculture.
“The problem with monocultural soy plantations is that they have to be maintained and irrigated,” says Arvind Singh, former director, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.
“If they are not maintained and maintained well, they can cause damage to the environment and biodiversity,” he says.
A similar situation exists with soy products.
“There are many cases of soy products that are produced in monoculate plantations.
They can be grown with less than 10% yield, but they are sold as ‘soy’ in most markets.
There is no regulation on the use of these products,” Singh says.
The problem is that many monoculent soy products can be imported from other countries, which leads to wastage and deforestation of the forests, says the former director.
He adds that a large part of the soy production can be exported to countries like China and Vietnam, where there are not enough forests to use for production of the products.
The current situation in India is not good, says Kailash Gavaskar, a senior environmental activist in the state of Bihar.
“It is very important that the government gets involved in this issue,” he said.
The government is yet to set a target to reduce the use and the deforestation of soy by 2030, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Food has announced an ambitious target of conserving over a third of the country’s land by 2030.
However, even if the target is met, it will be difficult to implement this task in a sustainable manner.
According the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAOS), more than 1.2 billion hectares of land has been designated as national forests since 1951.
However these areas have been mostly used for agricultural purposes, according a recent study.
In India, the number of forest-protected hectares in the country is about 3,000.
The total area of these forests has grown at a rapid pace over the past few decades, and has now reached over 17 million hectares.
This area is under the jurisdiction of the Forest Department of the Ministry.
According, the forests in the State are among the most fragmented in the nation.
A forest department official says the situation in the National Forests in India has been worsening.
“When you have forests under the management of the forest department, then you have a problem,” he adds.
The forests under Forest Department control are the most productive, according the official.
“They can produce large quantities of food for people.
However the management is very lax.
Even though these forests have been under Forest department control for many years, now the forest management is becoming lax,” he claims.
According the official, this means that many of these large areas of forest are being destroyed by industrialization.
“If you have too many large forests under a single department, it could lead to the destruction of these huge areas of forests and in the process, the area could get degraded,” he added.
The situation is similar in the surrounding states.
“Forest department has given out licences to industrialists and they are using forests for the purpose of production,” a local official says.
The state government is in charge of protecting these areas and has a long track record of protecting forests.
However, this is not enough.
According a recent research conducted by the World Resources Institute, India has a very poor record on forest management.
The report states that India has the lowest forest cover per capita in the region.
The country has also reported the highest number of deforestation cases per million inhabitants in the
