Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter presents the main characteristics and trends of the Peruvian agricultural sector and the institutional framework for the implementation of agricultural policies. It provides information on the use of nutrients and pesticides in agriculture and reviews the negative impacts of farming on deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, soil and water. The chapter points to the lack of monitoring of agri-environmental performance and emphasises the need for environmental education of farmers.
