Application of life cycle assessment to agriculture for evaluation of its impact on environments

環境影響評価のためのライフサイクルアセスメント手法の開発
Study period:1998 - 2003
Research overview:
This project is to apply a life cycle assessment technique to agriculture for the evaluation of agricultural activities on the local as well as global environments. First, the LCA technique is applied to current production systems of rice, upland crops and vegetables for evaluation of their impacts on environments. By reviewing the current production systems in terms of the environmental impact, a new promising production system is established for conservation and promotion of healthy air-, water-, and soil-environments.
