The changing climate: understanding and mitigating the environmental impact

Despite the fact that China's apple industry is heavily dependent on excessive inputs of fertilizer, water, and pesticides (FWP), there is little information available that systematically assesses the environmental effects, potential for mitigation, and economic advantages of China's apple production systems. Based on survey data from 847 farmers, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was undertaken in this study to clarify environmental risks and mitigation potentials of rainfed and irrigated apple production systems on China's Loess Plateau.
