Human beings have needed food to survive since their existence. There has been no second alternative to it and since in the early stages, the human population was not so scattered, there was no need to focus on food processing and food storage. However, since the population has grown immensely especially in the past two decades, there has been the need for newer ways to be invented in order to harvest food.
However, since newer ways have been invented, it has also led to degradation of the planet and the environment we have lived in. To counter out this degradation, the use of Green Technology has become a recent trend in food production. In the field of agri-food, the use of Green technology is referred to as organic and environment-friendly practices for food production. In the past few centuries, green technologies have mainly kept their focus on organic production of food. In this concept, a small area of a farm is utilized for the purpose of growing crops while a specific area is dedicated for sheep, goats, and cows to gaze from. No artificial substances, like pesticides or herbicides, are used while the only fertilizer is manure. In general, the organic form has all the essence of the notion of green technology for food production.
