Title: Determining the Use of Technology in World Food and Fiber Production


1
  • Determining the Use of Technology in World Food
    and Fiber Production

2
Next Generation Science / Common Core Standards
Addressed!
  • SL.11-12.5 Make strategic use of digital media
    (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and
    interactive elements) in presentations to enhance
    understanding of findings, reasoning, and
    evidence and to add interest. (HS-PS1-4)
  • RST.11-12.9 Synthesize information from a range
    of sources (e.g., texts, experiments,
    simulations) into a coherent understanding of a
    process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving
    conflicting information when possible. (HS-LS3-1)
  • HSS-IC.B.6 Evaluate reports based on data.
    (HS-LS2-6)

3

  • Explain agricultural technology.
  • Describe technology as it relates to machinery,
    plants, and animals.
  • Describe the role of computers in
    agriculture/horticulture.
  • Explain precision farming and its impact on
    agriculture.

8
Interest Approach
  • In groups of two or three students, come up with
    an invention for the future of agriculture.
    Provide an explanation for why it is needed and
    how it will be used in the agriculture industry.
    Specify advantages and disadvantages and be
    prepared to make a presentation to the rest of
    the class.

9
Technology
  • Technology is the use of inventions in working
    and living.

10
Agricultural Technology
  • Agricultural technology isthe technology used in
    agriculture.
  • Mostly based on science.

11
Benefits of Ag Technology
  • Agricultural technology has resulted in many new
    ways of producing
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Shelter

12
Technology has brought about many advantages in
agriculture.
  • Technology makes work easier.
  • Technology increases productivity.
  • Technology increases the standard of living.

13
Mechanical Technology
  • Mechanical technology is using physical force to
    do work. Devices are used topull, push, or
    rotate objects.

14
Agriculture Science
  • Gregor Mendel studied the heredity of peas.
  • He concluded that traits are passed from one
    generation to another.

15
Mass Selection
  • Mass selection is saving seed from the best
    plants. In the mid-1900s hybridization began.

16
Hybridization
  • Hybridization involves cross-breeding plants to
    combine the highest quality traits from each
    breed.

17
Pest Control
  • Pest control technology has improved the quality
    of many agriculture products.
  • A pest is anything that causes injury to animals,
    plants, or property.
  • Pests may include insects, diseases, or weeds.

18
Pesticides
  • Pesticides have made great strides from
    scientific research.
  • A pesticide is a substance that controls pests.
  • A pesticide can be a chemical or biological
    control.

19
Biological control
  • Biological control involves using living
    organisms to control pests.

20
Insecticide
  • An insecticide is a chemical substance used to
    control insect pests.

21
Advancements in Ag Science
  • Cloning and genetic engineering are being used in
    plant production and improvement.

22
Cloning
  • Cloning is making two or more organisms out of
    one using tissue.

23
Genetic Engineering
  • Genetic engineering is artificially changing the
    genetic makeup of an organism.

24
New Avenues for Production
  • New developments with fish have created a new
    area for agriculture, called aquaculture.

25
Robotics
  • Computers are used to operate robots.
  • A robot is a machine that can do varioustasks.
  • The robot receives its instructions from a
    computer which has been programmed a certain way.

26
Precision Farming
  • Precision farming is an information- and
    technology-based crop management system.
  • It takes into account differences in the needs of
    crops in specific sites within a field.
  • Check out John Deeres Farm Forward
    video!!!!!!!!!

27
Precision Farming!
28
Review/Summary
  • Explain agricultural technology.
  • Describe technology as it relates to machinery,
    plants, and animals.
  • Describe the role of computers in
    agriculture/horticulture.
  • Explain precision farming and its impact on
    agriculture.
