All very different, bit each having its own special beauty. Agriculture is a very strong part of industry in Chile. “...And in the west, in the central valley, there are fertile plots of land that support a thriving agricultural industry(source # 1)”. Some of the main products include grapes, wheat, peaches, and timber.
For instance, farming took place in the Aztecs and Incas environment, “the Inca were farmers, growing potatoes as well as other crops, often in terraces cut into the high mountainsides.” Patel (4). They also raised sheep and used their meat for hunger and its wool for cloth. Due to the Aztecs living on a swamp, they adapted by making a floating garden called a Chinampa to help produce maise and grow other crops. Maldonado (3).
Silvopastoralism, which can be practiced in different ways, is one of the new techniques they are starting to adapt which will help them with water and soil quality. Silvopastoralism is the relationship between trees and pasture to create better livestock production. Around 54.9% of land in Mexico is used for
Migrant farm workers are individuals who enter the United State or any other country illegally or legally to work in agriculture farms. Most of these farm workers are temporary and some are seasonal workers. There are many issues and challenges facing migrant workers. Migrant farm workers must survive many challenging conditions so that American can have the best selection of all the fresh foods found in farms. My grandfather was an immigrant that migrated from Yemen in 1970 and was working in a farm in Fresno CA.
Aztec Chinampas are floating gardens that can produce more crops than ordinary land. Marshy land was bad for crops, so they made Chinampas, or “floating gardens”, to grow their food. Chinampas were very successful in growing large amounts of food and sometimes was even better for plants. Although Chinampas didn’t always work, (flooding, etc.), it was an excellent adaptation to the environment they lived in. In an article about Aztec Chinampas, this idea is supported: “This large population meant that the exploitation of the
For example, he frequently mentions the differences between suitcase farming and lifestyle farming and how they are affected by capitalism. Suitcase farmers are those who only farm for profit whereas lifestyle farming, the farmers care about the
If everyone had their own farm, that would take over the entire country. After looking at my three solutions, I realize how big of an issue world hunger is. You can 't just wipe it out with one solution. I think that the best option is to use all three solutions to try to get rid of hunger.
Dr. Seth Holmes, who is an Assistant Professor of Public Health and Medical Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, was witness to the lives of a group of indigenous migrant farmworkers from the Triqui village of San Miguel in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. Through participant observation as well as interviews with clinic staff, public health officials, farm employees, U.S. border agents, and residents of the farming areas, he paints a detailed picture of the true cost of fresh fruits and vegetables in this country. In Holmes’ account, by using the stories of real people, we learn that Triqui farmworkers deal with backbreaking work, racism, language barriers (most Triqui farmworkers understand little English or Spanish), and
Transports Due to the geography of Chile, a functioning transport network is vital to its economy. With the decline of the railway network, now buses are the main means of transportation in Chile.  the bus system covers the entire country, from arica to San Diego (30 hours), from San Diego to Punta Arenas (about 40 hours, in Osorno change).(Olaverri C. 2017) Chile has 372 tracks (62 paved and 310 unpaved).
After 1750s industrial revolution began and it led to advances in agricultural technology that greatly increased food production, which allow other people to pursue other work. At that time horsepower came into use and machinery like steam engine used in the agricultural process. Tractors were used for ploughing. In 1701 Jethro Tull’s used drill ways of sowing seed in rows, in the place of broadcasting. The industrial revolution changed the whole pattern of agriculture.
Climate at the time was very important for them because it depended on their lives to either live a good life or a bad one. Climate is important for farming because “tells the farmers when the right time is to plant some of their crops when they need it” (National Climate Data Center). If the farmers did not know what climate was the farmers would not know what season it is and they would plant the wrong crops at the wrong time which means they would lose those crops. “In hot weather some crops can grow and those that are included are beans, corn,cucumbers, melons, peppers, and tomatoes. In the cold weather there are also some crops that can grow which are rice and sugarcane” (Bonnie Plants).
An even newer invention is the GMO, genetically modified organism. It is where you can alter the genes of a plant, by adding certain types of DNA. This corn is not only put in our food, but it is to pigs, chicken, and cattle who are injected with hormones and antibiotics. We are then eating these animals, and with them the hormones and antibiotics they contain.
The physical geography of the New England, Middle, and South regions are extremely different. The New England region is difficult to farm on because you have to break up rocks to farm on the thin soil. Breaking up the rocks required challenging work and they also had harsh winters. As a result of this, the New England people began fishing on their rich grounds and entered the lumber industry because of their thick forests. The Middle Colonies has amazing soil for growing wheat, which is what they received most of their income from.
The effect of agricultural runoff in the Chesapeake Bay watershed It is almost impossible to turn on the news without hearing about the turmoil of pollution, and how it is negatively affecting life worldwide. But have you stopped to think about how pollution is directly affecting your daily lives? Water is the heartbeat of all life, and without it nothing could thrive. Odds are, if you live within the northern mid-atlantic you get some or all of your water from the Chesapeake Bay, or one of its watersheds. Years of agricultural runoff from large industrial farms has lead to contamination of the Bay, endangering not only the lives of the wildlife, but also our own.
