They want to improve their process to grow a local food system that values the environment, health, and quality of life of Rhode Island farmers and eaters. This is a good lesson for me. I remember about my previous personal experience of adaptive learning in collaborating banking resources. Because my employer has many branches nationally in my country, I have to collaborate with other branches and communication is one of the key points to achieve the goal. C. What will you do differently in the future because of what you learned?
And, the persistent of monoculture eventually leads to the loss of biodiversity. “A case can be made that the corn plant’s population explosion on places like Iowa us responsible for pushing out not only other plants but the animals and finally the people, too”(Pollan 38). The economic temptation encourages the practice of monoculture instead of running a diverse farm. Species are forced to leave and clear the land for corn plantation. However, biodiversity is vital for sustainable development because every livestock and crops are completing the food chain.
However, we must learn to combine the benefits of both and fix the fix the hole we dug ourselves. Despite casing groundwater depletion, monocropping, and costing too much money, GMO farming is an efficient way to produce crops on a massive scale. Organic farming may be more susceptible to diseases and pest damage, but it is cheap and healthy which allows poor farmers to grow subsistence crops. It is hard to determine which type of farming is a better way of agriculture. Nonetheless, it is not hard to see the negative effects on the world that both types of agriculture leave.
In this way, the farmer can plan his future cropping and has not to worry about his next harvest as he would have to if he had not a secured minimum price. Through the guaranteed price set by the fair trade Foundation there are fair pay and working conditions on the farms what leads to a better work environment and less exploitation [Fairtrade Resource Network, 2008]. Eileen Maybin, member of The Fairtrade Foundation, says that “fair trade focuses on ensuring that farmers in developing countries receive an agreed and stable price for the crops they grow.” [O'Neill,
Additionally, my family does participate in the “organic food movement”: we tend to buy organic foods and shop at grocery stores that seem to be more environmentally friendly such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. This sort of consumer activism and consumer consciousness is fairly standard in my community, organic foods and eco-friendly groceries are very popular. The trend of eating locally is also popular within my community, which is often accomplished through shopping at the plethora farmer’s markets in the area. The high amount of financial privilege in my community allows the residents to make such choices as consumers, since locally grown produce tends to be more expensive. A 2011 study of the Philadelphia food system found that 53% of farmer’s markets in the general Philadelphia area are located in middle and upper income areas (Kremer and DeLiberty 2011).
This side of the solution space is more difficult, because it must not only pass the bureaucratic barriers in the government (ie. differences in political parties’ motivations) but also socio-cultural barriers in society (ie. farmers adamant on sticking to “traditional” agricultural practices for preserving “olden times” or their ancestral ways of farming). Anusuya Rangarajan’s manual on crop rotation has a section called Crop Rotation Effects on Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition that explains the importance of the education of farmers on the first technical solution mentioned earlier, crop rotation. Through education on good farming techniques, farmers can make educated decisions on their crop rotation sequences and changes to their daily crop-tending practices to naturally maintain the soil’s fertility (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education, 2012).
The portion of agriculture in China’s GDP dropped from 28.1% in 1978 to 11.8% in 2005. In China, the food producing enterprises like agriculture and its allied activities livestock farming the small and marginal farmers have dominated horticulture, floriculture; aquaculture etc. small farmers cultivating small plots of land characterize agriculture in Asia (NCESU, 2008). China has the world third largest area of 960 million square kilometers, the arable area is only 107 million hectare, only 7% of the global arable land. Therefore, agriculture is the fundamental industry not only to guarantee the supply to food and other agricultural products for the huge population
Farmers market sell a lot of products that you use daily and need. In a farmers market you have reach to needed food and drinks. Eating locally grown food is a lot better for the environment. Organic food is outweighed by the environmental damage. Eating organic is outweighed by the damage that it caused.
By providing countries with agricultural rate we are reducing disparities as we are giving them the means of increasing not only food production but the quality of the food. This will open up doors for trade, which will definitely help the LEDC with its economical state. Socially this will open up doors for jobs. Many farmers, dealers will be required to handle the agriculture. However, this may cost more than necessary for the donor country as training/technical expertise will be required for the recipients, along with any other resources.
So, people think they can get more opportunities in the big cities which rise abruptly in succession. Then they began to move to urban. The consequence of this is the population of people are much more than the population of rural area. On the other hand, the improvement of agriculture is also very important effect of in industrial revolution. Although more people come to urban area and join the industry, but the provisionment hadn’t decrease or stop.
