The article reports on the criticism of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation Development (OECD) against South Korea for failing to lower high usage of fertilizer and pesticides, and control greenhouse gas emissions. The OECD claimed that while the nation has reduced some air pollutant emissions such as sulphur oxides, through the use of cleaner fuels for vehicles and power plants, it was still lacking in several key areas.
