As of , agriculture only represents 3% of the world’s GDP, down from 4% in Even though agriculture represents a small share of the world’s economic output, this industry employs almost 30% of all workers. Developing countries are more likely than developed countries to rely on agriculture as a larger percentage of GDP. Agricultural producers in rural America represent less than 1% of the U.S. population, yet they produce almost 75% of the food we eat in this country and much of the food eaten throughout the world. Among that 1%, the average age of the American farmer is 57 years old—making it imperative for us to engage and encourage young people to pursue agricultural careers.
On the technology side, the big new development in U.S. agriculture is genetic engineering. We now move genes around, between unrelated life forms, in the hope of overcoming some problem or challenge usually rooted in farm management systems. iv Food and Agriculture: The future of sustainability Our population trajectory means that from now to , the world will need to build the equivalent of a city of one million people in developing countries, every five days! There is widespread consensus that, going forward, farmers must produce more food per unit of land, water, and.
Agriculture universally constitutes the bedrock for the emergence of civilisations across multiple societies all over the world. These histories provide ample opportunities for gazing over time and space to enrich the theoretical discussions of today’s agriculture development sector. This article diAuthor: Beyond Development.

It has photos and text describing the history of agriculture, the potential future of agriculture including what Disney is doing with experiments in hydroponics, rotation drums, interplanting, and other advances, including the growth of their own food for restaurants including the Land Pavilion at EPCOT Center.5/5(1).
After the roller- coaster ride that U.S. agriculture had taken in the s and s, policy makers and economic prognosticators alike were wondering what the future of U.S. agriculture is likely to be in the context of the changes that have been taking place and are continuing to take place in agricultures around the world.

The country’s agricultural sector averaged 3. A changing climate impacts agriculture directly through changes in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, and indirectly through the spread of stressors such as weeds, diseases, and insect pests.
These climate stressors have increased over the past 40 years and are projected to continue increasing by mid-century and beyond. Depending on where you live in the United States, the first thing that likely comes to mind for agriculture production systems are the large fields of corn, soybeans, wheat or cotton seen growing each summer.
But spend a few minutes looking at CropScape, a color-coded map that charts where almost a hundred different types of U.S. crops are grown currently, and you begin to appreciate the. Books Book Series Online Platforms Open Access Books.
