This photo shows environmentally-unfriendly Yerba mate cultivation in Misiones, Argentina. The exposed soil here is vulnerable to erosion, contributing to soil loss and pollution downstream. A more environmentally-friendly operation would have little exposed soil. This would also result in greater productivity.
