FC: Food, Soil, and Pest Management

1: A Closer Look at Industrialized Crop Production | What a beautiful view! | Green Revolution involves : - developing and panting monocultures of selectivelybred key crops. (rice,wheat, and corn. - produce high yields by using large inputs of fertilizers,pesticides, and water. -, increase the number of crops by plot of land through multiple cropping.

2: Industrialized farming has evolved into a small number of giant multinational corporations increasingly control the growing,processing,distributing, and sale of food called agribusiness

3: Industrialized Food Production in the Untied States

4: Crossbreeding and Genetic Engineering Ca produce New Crop Varieties. | For many years farms and scientist have used cross breeding to improve varieties of crops and livestock.

6: It takes about 15 years to cross breed and can only last about 5-10 years before pest and disease reduce their effectiveness Involves altering an organisms genetic material though adding, deleting, and changing segments of its DNA

7: Cross Breeding and Genetic Engineering Can Produce New Crop Varieties

8: Meat Production and Consumption Have Grown Steadily

9: -half of the worlds meat production comes from livestock grazing unfenced lands and the other half comes from farm raised animals - the meat production is likely to double by 2050 -more livestock means more land needed so there may be some limits in the future -as incomes grow, people tend to eat more meat and this requires more grain to feed the livestock

10: Fish and Shellfish Production Have Increased Dramatically

11: -world's third major food-producing system consists of fisheries and agriculture - fishery is a concentration of particular species suitable for commercial harvesting -agriculture is raising fish in ponds and underwater cages -77% of the worlds fish stocks are overexploited

12: -if we don't reduce overfishing, ocean pollution, and slow climate change, fisheries worldwide would collapse in 2050 -this would decrease food security for about 2.6 billion people who depend on fish

13: Fish and Shellfish Production Have Increased Dramatically
