The Circular Nutrient Cycle: Human Waste to Feed Crops

"Treated wastewater is an option for places where crops grow close to cities, such as many parts of Africa, Asia and Europe. However, water is challenging to transport because of its weight and relatively low nutrient content, so it is not a good option when nutrients must travel longer distances to reach farmland, the researchers said." - Excerpt from Illinois News Bureau, University of Illinois.
