Future of Global Agriculture: An Ecological Evaluation

Arslan Zafer Gurler, Gulistan Erdal and Halil Kizilaslan

In this study, environmental effects of agriculture has been tried to be revealed with use of climate changes until 2025 as data. With this aim, forecasting results estimated with data of past 22 years back to year 2002 were included in the study. Subjects of projection were described as consumptions of P, N, pesticides and usage of irrigation water, agricultural areas, population and GDP. With the World wide projection made for the year of 2025, it is estimated values of consumptions as P 51. 106 tons, N 105.106 tons, irrigation water 327,80. 106 ha, agricultural areas 5140. 106 ha, population 7934. 106, National product 76146. 106 $. Also, dominant features of countries are determined and analyzed with correlation analysis made between population, GDP and other variables. Generally, while GDP and population variables has no effect on P consumption, it has been seen to be effective especially over N consumption, irrigation water usage and agricultural areas.
