A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity and geodiversity existent in various ecosystems. Natural resources are derived from the environment. Some of them are essential for our survival while most are used for satisfying our wants. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, oil, and most forms of energy. There is much debate worldwide over natural resource allocations, this is partly due to increasing scarcity (depletion of resources) but also because the exportation of natural resources is the basis for many economies (particularly for developed nations such as Australia). Some natural resources such as sunlight and air can be found everywhere, and are known as ubiquitous resources. However, most resources only occur in small sporadic areas, and are referred to as localized resources. There are very few resources that are considered inexhaustible (will not run out in foreseeable future) -- these are solar radiation, geothermal energy, and air (though access to clean air may not be). The vast majority of resources are exhaustible, which means they have a finite quantity, and can be depleted if managed improperly... Classification There are various methods of categorizing natural resources, these include source of origin, stage of development, and by their renewability. These classifications are described below. On the basis of origin, resources may be divided into: - Biotic -- Biotic resources are obtained from the biosphere (living and organic material), such as forests and animals, and the materials that can be obtained from them. Fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum are also included in this category because they are formed from decayed organic matter. - Abiotic -- Abiotic resources are those that come from non-living, non-organic material. Examples of abiotic resources include land, fresh water, air and heavy metals including ores such as gold, iron, copper, silver, etc...

Protecting our natural resources
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization releases the Global Forest Resources Assessment report – known as FRA - every 5 years, using data collected by member countries on their forests and the impact they have on the environment. FAO has designed a new field method for reliable data collection which is now being tested in forests in Vietnam. The launch of this year’s Global Forest Resources Assessment Report – which covers the last 25 years of forest changes – will highlight the need for continued efforts to sustain forest management for the benefit of current and future generations. © FAO: http://www.fao.org Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge

Producing more food with less: Investing in resource-efficient technologies and practices
Globally, agrifood chains consume 30 percent of the world’s available energy – with more than 70 percent consumed beyond the farm gate. In the Mediterranean region, an area with limited land and water resources where agriculture plays a substantial role, the effectiveness and overall productivity of agrifood value chains will be increasingly dependent on the availability and efficient use of energy and natural resources. Achieving the transition to “resource-smart” food systems will require better policy-making as well as a collaborative and proactive multi-stakeholder approach. The video has been produced on the occasion of the Private Sector Forum on Food Security in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Region that was held in Barcelona on 5 and 6 May 2015 © FAO: http://www.fao.org
Factors of Production (Resources)
Factors of Production (Resources) There 4 factors of production, namely, land/raw materials, labor, capital and entrepreneurship. Why is entrepreneurship considered a type of resource? Well, because an entrepreneur brings other 3 factors of production (land/raw materials, capital and labor) together to make production possible. Why is money not considered a type of resource in economics? What is the difference between economic capital and financial capital?

Support our Kickstarter- kickstarter.com/projects/cyrussutton/island-earth-documentary Chemical agriculture bears an uncanny resemblance to the pharmaceutical industry. Both produce patented drugs that are meant to eventually fail so new ones need to be invented. The United Nations has repeatedly reported that small farmers consistently grow 70% of the world's food supply on less than 30% of the world’s agricultural resources while the remaining 30% is produced by industrial/chemical farming which consumes 70% of the resources. According to the land-use group Grain, "The powerful demands of food and energy industries are shifting farmland and water away from direct local food production to the production of commodities for industrial processing. Big farms generally consume more resources, control the best lands, receive most of the irrigation water and infrastructure, yet they have lower technical efficiency and therefore lower overall productivity. Much of this has to do with low levels of employment used on big farms in order to maximize return on investment. Small farms are often twice as productive as large farms and are more environmentally sustainable. Using less than a quarter of the world's agricultural land, such farms are getting smaller all the time, if small farmers continue to lose the very basis of their existence, the world will lose its capacity to feed itself. We need to urgently put land back in the hands of small farmers and make the struggle for agrarian reform central to the fight for better food systems." A revealing study published by Cornell University asserts that we are destroying 37,000 square miles of farmland due to soil erosion caused by industrial agricultural practices which exhaust soil health. Without fungal and plant root webs soil becomes structureless dirt that can be easily swept away by wind and rain. And according to a Stanford University study, soil erosion and runoff are the greatest contributors of ocean acidification. "The threat of nuclear weapons and man's ability to destroy the environment are really alarming. And yet there are other almost imperceptible changes - I am thinking of the exhaustion of our natural resources, and especially of soil erosion - and these are perhaps more dangerous still, because once we begin to feel their repercussions it will be too late." - (p144 of The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace: 2002, Element Books, London) If this is such a huge threat, then why aren’t we doing anything about it? Most people have been mislead to believe that large-scale, chemical agriculture is the only way to feed the growing population and have laid down their rights. Despite this, many counties and states in the US are waking up and attempting to protect themselves by demanding transparency and placing restrictions on agrochemical companies. Nearly all of these grassroots bills have been countered by multimillion dollar campaigns to scare voters. In the past election alone, over 30 million dollars was spent in Oregon and Colorado to defeat their proposed GMO labeling bills. In cases when the people rise up despite corporate PR and pass legislation, like in the case of Kauai’s 2491 bill, the chemical companies have sued the people citing the The Right to Farm Bill. The Right to Farm Bill was drafted to protect farmers from undue complaints but in the list of protective measures includes the praying of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. The fact that these terms are accepted as inherent practices with farming shows a lack of public understanding of the realities of farming. Only with an informed public can we vote with our dollars and our ballots to ensure the food we consume is not irreparably harming our environment. Because of this I am making a documentary about the effects of industrial agriculture and people who are moving back to land and discovering new efficient solutions for local food production.

Troubled Water: Time to Conserve Our Resources | Shantanu Singhal | TEDxPasadenaWomen
Shantanu Singhal, a teenage boy from New Delhi, reveals a revolutionary plan for growing food with very little water and absolutely no soil. His straightforward invention of "soilless agriculture" might not only change how the world deals with drought, but how we might someday grow produce on Mars. When the Nepal earthquake struck in April 2015, the destruction was so absolute that it was impossible for Shantanu to remain a passive witness. With the support of family and a knack for marketing, he began a social media campaign to request help. His team raised 16,000,000 Indian Rupees (approx. $25,000) plus material donations, and he personally visited the worst affected areas to hand over the proceeds. His essay on the experience was published in national newspaper The Indian Express. After reading about rising farmer suicides in India due to drought, Shantanu created UNNAT, a hydroponics project and experiment in soilless agriculture. One key outcome was the development of a simple kit which can be used to grow several essential crops such as fenugreek, cabbage and spinach. The state government of Uttar Pradesh noticed the potential of UNNAT, and selected the organization for a pilot study that began in August 2016. Shantanu also organizes school leadership events and talks, se This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Sustaining the Aquaculture : Vannamei Shrimps Farming  | Nuteq Entertainment
India is endowed with a long coastline rich in natural resources and vast stretch of coastal land for farming that provides us opportunity for large exploitation of marine wealth. Shrimp are highly in demand, primarily because it is an integral part of gourmet cuisine and a daily diet across the millions of homes. The estimated area suitable for undertaking shrimp cultivation in India is around 11.91 lakhs ha spread over 10 coastal states and union territories. A Video on बेहतर प्रबंधन आचरण and जलकृषि को स्थायित्व- झींगे की खेती Globally, India is the 4th largest farmed shrimp producer. It is commonly said that time is now for Blue Revolution to exploit the huge potential in aquaculture sector, because of High Unit value, Short duration of crop, Quick return on Investment, persistent demand and fast expanding world market. The Marine Products Export Development Authority, under the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Govt. of India is the nodal agency for promotion of export of marine products from India. National Centre for Sustainable Aquaculture (NaCSA) is an outreach organization of MPEDA, that aim to service the small scale aquaculture sector through technical support to the primary aquaculture societies and build capacity among small farmers to produce quality products in a sustainable manner. In India for the first time, researchers at the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Aquaculture (RGCA), in collaboration with researchers from the USA-based Oceanic Institute, an affiliate of Hawaii Pacific University, have developed specific pathogen free (SPF) P. vannamei brood stock.

Choosing Trees for Charcoal Production
Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agent, Adam Downing, explains what to look for when harvesting wood for charcoal or firewood. Hardwood is more dense and makes a better quality charcoal while pine is lighter and burns hotter, making it less desirable for cooking chicken, for instance. Leaving the dead trees on the forest floor is best because it provides habitat for forest dwellers. Live trees should be cut, which will open the canopy and allow the remaining trees to receive more light, thus improving forest health. Adam suggests marking desired trees during the summer while they are easier to identify and then returning during the cooler months to harvest the trees. Harvesting trees for charcoal can be done at any time of year, but allowing the cut timber adequate time to dry before burning in the kiln is critical. Allow trees to dry for a minimum of two months. For more information on charcoal production, please visit this website: http://web1.cnre.vt.edu/forestry/char...

The Economics of Conservation
William Gascoigne with the U.S. Geological Survey is investigating the economic contribution of conserved habitat lands to the economy in the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) of the U.S. His research shines a light on the linkages between landscape conditions and conditions within surrounding rural communities; linkages that are not always that apparent. This research context has been relatively understudied in the natural resources field, but has emerged due to the current economic climate and competing land uses in the PPR. The question his research aims to address— how does investing in landscape conservation impact rural economies now and in the future? The study, which received funding from the Plains and Prairie Pothole Landscape Conservation Cooperative in 2011, is breaking ground by illustrating the "socioeconomics" of wildlife conservation, particularly in rural communities heavily dominated by agriculture. It will analyze the dollar value of specific conservation actions by drawing parallels to the value of outdoor recreation, a storied pastime in the dwindling hunting and fishing communities of the PPR, while considering the value of agricultural interests. Hunters and anglers traditionally have been poised to support habitat restoration and species management efforts because of their direct connection to the landscape. With fewer hunters and anglers relative to the growing human population, natural resource managers increasingly look to the agricultural community for collaboration and support to maximize habitat quality and achieve other landscape natural resources objectives, while keeping agricultural values intact. The results of Gascoigne's research can ultimately be used at the local level by natural resource managers and local agricultural interests to inform on the ground conservation and land use activities to maximize landscape conservation objectives.

Agricultural Sustainability-Informative Speech February 14, 2015
Title: Agricultural Sustainability By: Matthew Grimes Topic: Sustainability in agriculture and how farmers care for their resources. Specific Purpose Statement: To inform the audience about how farmers care for their resources and try to be as efficient and productive while doing so. Thesis: Farmers know, the better the land and livestock are cared for and managed the more productive they can be, so it simply makes sense that farmers would want to take care of these resources to the best of their ability. Introduction: A. In recent years many people and organizations have made claims that farmers don’t care for the land very well, or simply don’t care if they deplete its resources. i. Most of these people and organizations making these claims are generations removed from the farm and know little to nothing about how agriculture actually works today. B. Farmers know the better the land and livestock are cared for and managed the more productive they can be, so it simply makes sense that farmers would want to take care of these resources to the best of their ability. C. Today I will discuss three topics that show how farmers take care of their land and try to be as efficient and productive as possible while doing this. ii. First we will discuss farmers’ tactics to controlling erosion. iii. Then we will jump into input efficiency in agriculture. iv. Lastly we will talk about how farmers use livestock in their operations. Body: I. One obstacle nearly all farmers come across is erosion control. A. One thing farmers do to prevent soil erosion is construct terraces. v. Natural Resources Conservation Service, Terrace. (2010, April 1). B. Farmers often use waterways in combination with terraces or simply by their selves to reduce erosion. i. Montgomery, D. (2008, June 30). A Case for No-Till Farming. C. One other tactic for soil erosion control that has been becoming more popular in recent years is the use of cover crops. i. Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education. Benefits of Cover Crops. (2012, January 1) II. Now that we have discussed how farmers implement erosion control, let’s jump into input efficiency in agriculture. A. Throughout history farmers have progressively become more productive, but in the last fifty or so years that level of progress has significantly sped up. B. Farmers that irrigate have gotten that down to a science as well. i. Center Pivot Water Conservation Project: UNL Extension partners with Nebraska Center Pivot Manufacturers | UNL Water | University of Nebraska-Lincoln. (2014, January 1). III. Another thing that farmers do to be as efficient as possible and stay sustainable is us livestock in their operation. A. There are many people who claim we should eat less meat as it takes more land and resources to produce the same amount of meat as it does grain, however there is evidence that this is wrong. i. Farmers graze livestock, often cattle, on land that is not suitable for crop production (this can be for many reasons). ii. They often graze livestock on crop residues after the crops are harvested. B. If these resources weren’t used by livestock, then they would all go to waste. i. According to the Environmental Protection Agency. Land Use Overview. (2013, April 9). Conclusion: A. Today we have discussed three topics that show how farmers take care of their land and try to be as efficient and productive as possible while do so. i. First we talked about farmers’ tactics to controlling erosion. ii. Then we discussed input efficiency in agriculture. iii. Lastly we talked about how farmers us livestock in their operations. B. I hope you now see that farmers really do care about the land and livestock in their operations and that claims by people and organizations that they don’t are false.

Nebraska Water Resources- Informative Speech
Title: Water Resources in Nebraska Topic: Water Resources in Nebraska Specific Purpose Statement: To inform about Nebraska’s water resources, why they are important to Nebraska, and address water resource issues. Thesis: Water is a vitally important natural resource as it is a part of our everyday lives, and is especially important to the state of Nebraska. Introduction: Water. It covers 70 percent of the earth’s surface, but only one percent of that is available for use and has to be shared worldwide to provide for a variety of needs. Water is a vitally important natural resource as it is a part of our everyday lives, and is especially important to the state of Nebraska. Nebraska has some of the best water resources in the nation and in the world. Since water is a critical natural resource, today I will be informing you about the different water resources in Nebraska, water’s importance to Nebraska, and issues that Nebraska faces with the natural resource of water. Body: I.Different Water Resources in NE A.Groundwater 1.Aquifers beneath earth’s surface 2.Used for agriculture, towns, & industrial use a.85% of the NE’s pop. uses groundwater as drinking water (NE Dep. of Environ. Qual., 2017) b.Ogallala Aquifer i.Covers 174,000 sq. mi. stretching over SD, NE, WY, CO, KS, OK, NM, & N TX (NE Trial Lawyers, 2017) ii.Could cover the state with nearly 40 feet of water if it were all pumped to the surface (Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, 2017) B.Surface Water 1.Streams, rivers, lakes a.Nebraska has 18,000 miles of rivers and streams and 430 square miles of lakes (Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, 2017) i.Wildlife and native fish species rely on Nebraska’s streams for survival and prosperity b.Platte River 2.Water quality:good enough to support fish, aquatic life, swimming, irrigation, & drinking water (NE Dep. of Environ. Qual, 2017) 3.Surface water used for irrigation, hydropower, industrial use, municipal use, domestic use, storage, and other uses require a State permit (Nebraska Department of Natural Resources, 2017) II.Water’s Importance to Nebraska A.Agriculture 1.Ogallala Aquifer:15 million acres of crops ea. yr. (Nebraska Trial Lawyers, 2017) 2.Nebraska’s 8 million acres of cropland under irrigation is ranked number one in the U.S. (Hendee, 2015) B.Economic Growth 1.Irrigated agriculture in Nebraska contributes $3.6 to $4.5 billion in net economic impact (Nebraska Trial Lawyers, 2017) 2.Irrigation contributed $11 billion to Nebraska’s economy in 2012 during one of the worst droughts in the state’s history (Hendee, 2015) III.Issues A.Nebraska’s waterways are the sixth worst in the nation for toxic pollution (Laukaitis, 2014) 1.Nitrate B.Contamination 1.addition of harmful chemicals to natural water 2.Runoff from rain and irrigation can carry chemicals into streams and urban and rural areas 3.Fertilizers & agriculture chemicals have already reached groundwater in parts of the state 4.10.5 million lbs of toxic chemicals into rivers in 2012 (Laukaitis, 2014) 5.Nitrates:serious health problems (Laukaitis, 2014) a.causes cancer b.Infants and children:grow, learn, and develop Conclusion: Water is basic to all things and so essential. Groundwater and surface water are equally as important as they both support agriculture, domestic, and industrial use, wildlife, the environment and so much more. It is especially significant to Nebraska for agricultural use. It is important to be aware of the always increasing demand for water and the issues that Nebraska and the world face concerning it. Water is essential to living and we should be grateful for the abundance of water that we have right here in Nebraska. References Hendee, D. (2015, November 29).

Preserving America’s Precious Resources:
How Technology, Conservation, Sustainability & Women are Making a Difference in Family Farming and our Dinner Table When Texans sit down at the table for a meal they may not think much about where the food on their plate comes from, and the hard work that made it possible. But highly advanced technology through irrigation management and satellite imaging, combined with conservation practices, have directly impacted the food we find in our local stores. Female farmers play a large role in that and make up an organization, CommonGround. They are having conversations about the food they grow and how they produce it – helping consumers sort through the myths and misinformation surrounding food and farming. A recent Field to Fork dinner held in Sherman County, Texas, last month aimed to bridge this gap in understanding by connecting food influencers and decision makers with the farmers that grow their food. It was made possible by the Water Grows Jobs initiative, which is a partnership of the Texas Corn Producers (TCP) and the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service in Texas (NRCS). The partners saw this opportunity for food influencers and decision makers to gain a greater understanding of the sustainable farming practices in Texas, including water conservation and technological advancements used to benefit the Ogallala Aquifer. Additionally, the event offered insight on other hot button issues for anyone purchasing food such as farm ownership, GMOs, food safety, and local and organic food. Gain further insight about how Texas farmers are conserving natural resources, including the Ogallala Aquifer, by visiting www.WaterGrowsJobs.org. Consumers interested in more information about hot topic issues related to their food can also visit www.FindOurCommonGroud.com. CommonGround is made possible by America’s corn and soybean farmers, including Texas Corn Producers (TCP). Leading legislative advocacy, education, promotion and research for the industry, TCP serves the state's corn farmers through two organizations, the Texas Corn Producers Board and the Corn Producers Association of Texas. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a federal agency that works hand-in-hand with the people of Texas to improve and protect their soil, water and other natural resources. For decades, private landowners have voluntarily worked with NRCS specialists to prevent erosion, improve water quality and promote sustainable agriculture.
The Future of Farming & Agriculture
Technology is revolutionizing farming. That's great news—by the year 2050 Earth's population will be 10 billion, so we need to almost double the amount of food we now produce.

Peru: Gov't approves dangerous chemicals for use in agriculture
The Peruvian NGO Environmental Rights and Natural Resources (DAR) reported that earlier this year the executive branch issued two controversial decrees with negative environmental effects. One decree allows the use of fertilizers that damage the ozone layer and the others permits the marketing and use of pesticides characterized by the World Health Organization as extremely dangerous, contaminating rivers, lakes, and soil as well as posing health risks for the population. Organic farmers are proposing alternatives. Rael Mora reports from Lima. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/peru-govt-approves-dangerous-chemicals-for-use-in-agriculture/

Soil Erosion and Conservation: "Muddy Waters" US Department of Agriculture 9min
more at http://quickfound.net/links/agriculture_news_and_links.html Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erosion Erosion is the process by which soil and rock are removed from the Earth's surface by natural processes such as wind or water flow, and then transported and deposited in other locations. While erosion is a natural process, human activities have dramatically increased (by 10-40 times) the rate at which erosion is occurring globally. Excessive erosion causes problems such as desertification, decreases in agricultural productivity due to land degradation, sedimentation of waterways, and ecological collapse due to loss of the nutrient rich upper soil layers. Water and wind erosion are now the two primary causes of land degradation; combined, they are responsible for 84% of degraded acreage, making excessive erosion one of the most significant global environmental problems we face today. Industrial agriculture, deforestation, roads, anthropogenic climate change and urban sprawl are amongst the most significant human activities in regards to their effect on stimulating erosion. However, there are many available alternative land use practices that can curtail or limit erosion—such as terrace-building, no-till agriculture, and revegetation of denuded soils... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soil_conservation Soil conservation is a set of management strategies for prevention of soil being eroded from the Earth's surface or becoming chemically altered by overuse, acidification, salinization or other chemical soil contamination. It is a component of environmental soil science. Decisions regarding appropriate crop rotation, cover crops, and planted windbreaks are central to the ability of surface soils to retain their integrity, both with respect to erosive forces and chemical change from nutrient depletion. Crop rotation is simply the conventional alternation of crops on a given field, so that nutrient depletion is avoided from repetitive chemical uptake/deposition of single crop growth. Windbreaks Windbreaks are created by planting sufficiently dense rows or stands of trees at the windward exposure of an agricultural field subject to wind erosion. Evergreen species are preferred to achieve year-round protection; however, as long as foliage is present in the seasons of bare soil surfaces, the effect of deciduous trees may also be adequate. There are also conventional practices that farmers have invoked for centuries. These fall into two main categories: contour farming and terracing, standard methods recommended by the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service, whose Code 330 is the common standard. Contour farming was practiced by the ancient Phoenicians, and is known to be effective for slopes between two and ten percent. Contour plowing can increase crop yields from 10 to 50 percent, partially as a result from greater soil retention... There are many erosion control methods that can be used such as conservation tillage systems and crop rotation. Keyline design is an enhancement of contour farming, where the total watershed properties are taken into account in forming the contour lines. Terracing is the practice of creating benches or nearly level layers on a hillside setting. Terraced farming is more common on small farms and in underdeveloped countries, since mechanized equipment is difficult to deploy in this setting. Human overpopulation is leading to destruction of tropical forests due to widening practices of slash-and-burn and other methods of subsistence farming necessitated by famines in lesser developed countries. A sequel to the deforestation is typically large scale erosion, loss of soil nutrients and sometimes total desertification. Perimeter runoff control. Trees, shrubs and groundcovers are also effective perimeter treatment for soil erosion prevention, by insuring any surface flows are impeded. A special form of this perimeter or inter-row treatment is the use of a "grassway" that both channels and dissipates runoff through surface friction, impeding surface runoff, and encouraging infiltration of the slowed surface water...
