This book explores one of the most important uses of the land: the production of agriculture. Readers will learn that farms and ranches produce much more than food; but scientists, farmers, ranchers, and other landowners haven't solved conservation problems—yet.

Coverage includes: How farmers manage to feed the world Why the United States agriculture is such an incredible bargain The importance of soils and climate Why weeds are much more than a nuisance Renewable and non-renewable resources and sustainable agriculture Alternative farming techniques Why managing the land, water, and soil is a delicate balancing act Future issues, new technology and developments, and synthetic materials How the U.S. space program is currently involved in studies concerning agricultural issues on Earth and in space How agriculture can be used to create fuel in today s energy-hungry world.
