Could you imagine about working condition in plantation?
Okay. Let's explain it!
The tropical rain forest that become cultivation places are decreasing every year.
Shrub coffee is the shade of a tree cultivation essentially as we explained early.
However, in this cultivation amounts of crops are little and need to have trouble because they must work only their hands, so they can't help cutting the forest down and make only coffee farm.
On single cultivation, soils and water are polluted by harmful insects, germs and chemical medicine, so cutting forest down is occured other places again.
Most of production places are tropical rain forest where is said that 50~80% of the earth creatures live, so it decreasing is related to behavior destruction.
It is the main current for coffee cultivation to cultivate at plantation farm, so it need vast land.
In countries that produce coffee, it is carried to cut forest on a big scale to save the land.
People think that efficiency of coffee produce is most important.
And it cause destruction of environment by using heavy machinery and cutting forest.
And besides, in general coffee is said the third crop that use agricultural medical and chemical fertilizer in per unite area following cotton and cigarette. The fact give bad influence not only environment but also growers very much.
In concrete terms is as follows.
Example : damage occured by agricultural medicine that are used coffee produce
･water damage on river or lake
･damage for soil microorganisms
･rapid destruction of behavior
･destruction of ozone layer
Example : damage for human body
･trouble of organ
･stimulation for skin
･pesticide poisoning death
I didn't know such things are caused because of coffee at all.
Plantation agriculture requires a large land, so coffee cultivation requires a vast land for cultivation. Therefore, tropical forests are cut down and lead to destruction of ecosystems.
Also, because it uses a lot of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, producers also have a great health hazard.
