Title: Dairy farming


1
Dairy farming
Has become highly mechanized in recent years.
Cows are hooked up to automated milking machines.
The machines pump out the mild and store it.
Farmers generally have a contract with a company
to buy and market the milk under the companies
name.
Major dairy regions of the US include Wisconsin
and Minnesota
2
Plantation agriculture large commercial farms
in tropical climates. Underpaid local workers
and owners from the developed world.
Almost exclusively found in LDCs
3
In order to replay international loans (from
MDCs), many LDCs turn from growing staple crops
to cash crops. This can leave to famine in the
LDC because the crops grown are being exported.

C. SECOND AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION
Agriculture underwent significant change during
the 17th -19th centuries
1. tools equipment, soil preparation,
fertilization, crop care, techniques in
harvesting improved, food storage
2. Productivity increased to meet demand
Machines/tractors doing the work instead of
humans and animals. The switch from animate to
inanimate power.

The second agricultural revolution went hand in
hand with?

D. THIRD AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION Also known as
the Green Revolution
  • 3. Other crops
  • Wheat, corn, tomatoes, bananas have benefited
  • Methods for fattening livestock faster
  • 4. Consequentlyfamines have been abated
  • 5. But genetic products require more
    fertilization and pesticides
  • Reduces the organic matter in the soil and leads
    to groundwater pollution
  • Some farmers do not have access or money for
    genetic seeds and so they are at a competitive
    disadvantage
  • 1. Laboratories and plant nurseries
  • biotechnology and genetic engineering
  • higher yielding strains of grain
  • 2. First experimented with in the Philippines
  • Scientists crossed a dwarf Chinese variety of
    rice with an Indonesian variety and got IT8
  • Bigger head of rice
  • Stronger stem would not break
  • Better yields

AGRIBUSINESS Companies involved in the
production of seeds, growing and harvesting of
crops and the sale of marketing of a finished
products.
Farmers sign contracts with major corporations
who furnish the seeds and fertilizer. The
farmers then sells his entire crop to the company.
The best known crop (although not the only one)
produced by agribusiness is?

Most foods today are produced through some form
of agribusiness.
Some of the biggest companies you have never
heard of.

Von Thunens agricultural land use model.
He suggests that certain crops are grown in
direct relation to their weight and distance to
market.
Why would dairy and market gardening be located
near the city center?
Both spoil easily and must be near their markets.
