I wonder how much of that is reliant on extreme fertilizer and pesticide use

Well we have an ongoing crisis cause our agriculture sector is polluting too much. And people just voted on a party that supports farmers and is just claiming more research should be done while they continue ruining nature.

So i guess quite a bit.

That is mostly caused by the meat industry though.

yes, that party is the biggest scam yet but wait until they find out tho...... Doesn't BBB remind you of something? Boer Burger Beweging? Build Back Better?

No it didn't, i had to google it. I don't know how that plan is going but investing into infra and environment seems like the opposite of BBB.

Fertilizer, yes ('though limited, as the natural river delta and drained peat bogs that make up the bulk of our nation tend to be fertile ground). Pesticides not so much.

Fertilizer production (from livestock industries), use and the nitrate emissions it causes are a major source of controversy in our nation at the moment.

The cautionary part did not get through in the submission statement. But as you can imagine in a tiny country with 17 million people and 12 million pigs we have a few problems. Big problems, both ecological and political. So yes, learn from the Dutch, but learn all, there are huge downsides.
