Management of Farming

Subjects / Geography / Farming

Price: £2.95 Duration: 25mins Full topic price: £14.95

Advances in science and technology have helped revolutionise farmers' lives and businesses. However, how humans manage the advances in farming is crucial. MEDC farmers with access to large amounts of money have learned about the effects their methods have had, but they have learned the hard way. Mistakes were made, and how farming deals with these mistakes and ensures they will not happen again is now the primary focus for MEDC farming. LEDC farming is usually conducted on a much simpler level. Lack of wealth, poor soil quality and extreme climates have had a huge effect on the efficiency of LEDC farming. MEDC technology and methods have been sold and exported to poorer countries, but have not always brought the success hoped for. How these countries deal with future problems will determine whether they will become more successful.
