EXTRA STUDY NOTES:
Just something cool: https://www.pinterest.com/kewitzler/ap-human-geography/
VERTICAL INTEGRATION "Vertical integration is the merging together of two businesses that are at different stages of production—for example, a food manufacturer and a chain of supermarkets; the combination in one company of two or more stages of production normally operated by separate companies."
EX. Starbucks is an examples because it owns the businesses from "seed to store" following its product at all stages.
see the assignment section below
FREE TRADE "international trade left to its natural course without tariffs, quotas, or other restrictions."
see the assignment section below
extra credit: complete this step by step
CAFO information about CAFOs in our state!
see the assignment section below
ASSIGNMENT: Answer these questions below in the comments section OR email me with the subject: Agriculture Discussion. Feel free to read each others comments and answer or ask questions of other students.
1. What are some pros/cons of vertical integration?
2. Overall, do you think vertical integration is positive or negative?
1. How has globalization affected farmers and countries that grow tropical cash crops for good and bad? Explain!
1. What is sustainable food? Are CAFOs and large plantations and cash crops examples of sustainable food? Why or why not?
2. Can the US/the world "go back to the start" when it comes to agriculture? Why or why not? What are some potential solutions to the harmful effects of factory farms? (think environment, people, health, etc)
BRAZIL AGRICULTURAL GROWTH: QUICK OPTIC XTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY!
OPTIC this graph like we have done before. An explanation of the organizer is below in case you need reminders.
What do you think is causing Brazil's increase in yield even though their harvested area has not increased as much?
*Remember-YOU retitle the graph in your optics!
Whoa. That listening activity was hard. You all did an excellent job.
Read this article and define CAFO. What is a CAFO? What are the requirements? What is not a CAFO?
Where are factory farms located in the US? Check out this awesome interactive map
Watch these videos: Can we go "back to the start"? Which video is most realistic? What do you think of commercial agriculture and concentrated animal feeding opetations?
Back to the Start
Can we go "back to the start"? Which is most realistic?
How do factory farms affect us?
Natural Resources and CAFOS
Waste Lagoon at a Feedlot
Check here for images of CAFOs
What are the environmental effects?
What pollutants do CAFOs produce?
CAFOs produce huge amounts of animal sewage and other pollutants.
CAFO owners and operators spend millions of dollars on technologies that make it possible to produce massive quantities of milk, eggs, and meat, yet they resist investing in technologies and practices to properly treat the wastes that are by-products of this industry:
Often you'll hear owners of CAFOs argue that the wastes produced by the livestock provide nutrients that help them offset the use of synthetic fertilizers. The sheer amount of wastes produced, however, often overwhelms the ability of the land and crops to absorb CAFO wastes.
Are there different kinds of CAFOs?
One type of CAFO houses livestock in buildings the animals seldom leave. Removing wastes from these buildings is a major challenge.
Another type of CAFO is the feedlot, which keeps the animals outdoors in pens. Here the manure waste accumulates on the ground, often washing off into nearby ditches and streams.
What's in CAFO waste?
In addition to plant nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen, CAFO waste is likely to contain:
Nutrients in this CAFO waste can cause bright-green algae blooms in ditches, streams, and lakes. As these surface-water algae blooms die off, the oxygen in the water is depleted. What does this do? It can lead to fish kills. Additionally, drinking-water plants must remove these nutrients before water is fit for consumption.
Pathogens such as E.coli bacteria, cryptosporidium, and salmonella, all of which can cause sickness or death in humans and animals, may be present in CAFO wastes.
CAFO wastes (including fish farms) can contain a slurry of toxins, including viruses, infectious bacteria, antibiotics, heavy metals, and oxygen-depleting nutrients that run off the land, contaminate groundwater and aquatic systems, and pollute the atmosphere.
Toxic Storage “Lagoons” Lagoon storage and sprayfield applications on land are two common methods of dealing with CAFO wastes. Neither is problem-free. Spraying liquid manure onto croplands can spread viruses, bacteria, antibiotics, metals (such as zinc, arsenic, copper, and selenium),3 nitrogen, phosphorus, and other compounds that run off the land, contaminate the groundwater, travel through subterranean field drains (tiles), and pollute the atmosphere. Spraying more animal waste than the surrounding land can safely absorb is common. When lagoons burst, develop leaks, or are overwhelmed by flood events, as often happens, millions of gallons of manure reach waterways and spread microbes that can cause gastroenteritis, fevers, kidney failure, and death. One bacteria, Pfiesteria piscicida, produces a powerful toxin that has been responsible for massive fish kills in waters polluted by hog manure.
So, 1st period, that was unfortunate. Well, you have to complete that article at home.
I know some of you appreciated the listening activity, and others of you were in agony (! really, guys, really?) HOWEVER that is information you are responsible for knowing and learning. So I highly suggest you go back and check this out Introduction to Tropical Agriculture. It was the document I was reading from. You should find all your answer there.
For homework tonight you should read the article "From Mocha to Java" and try to complete the categorization activity that was cut off. We were nearly done anyhow, we were on the last page, "Independence and Tropical Agriculture."
Sorry, guys and gals, but thanks for being such troopers!
