Q 2. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below.

Destruction of forests has a major impact on the productivity of our crop lands. This happens in tw ways. Soil erosion increases manifold and the soil literally gets washed away, leading to an accentuated cycle of floods and droughts. But equally important is the impact of the shortage of firewood on the productivity of crop lands. When fire wood becomes scarce, people Begin to bum cow dung and crop wastes. In many places cow dung and crop Wastes are now the major sources of cooking energy. Thus slowly every part of the plant gets used and nothing goes back to the soil. Over a period of time this nutrient drain affects crop productivity. Add to this the technology of the Green Revolution, the technology of growing high yielding varieties on a limited diet of chemical fertilizers like nitrogen, phosphates and potash.
