Gland, Switzerland - Farming is one of the most destructive activities for 
the environment and must become more eco-friendly, a book by the conservation 
group World Wildlife Fund said on Friday.

of goods annually, the world's largest industry destroys areas of forest more 
than four times the size of Switzerland every year, according to the book, 
World Agriculture And The Environment.
