Question description

For this week’s DB, please read the chapter on agriculture in your textbook and then watch at least three short videos from Frontline World (available at http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/) and/or W.H. Freeman (some suggestions are listed below). 

You should discuss one or more of the following questions: 

1.) What are some explanations (physical and socio-political) for the geographic distribution of various forms of agriculture across the Earth? Has this distribution changed during the last several hundred years? If so, how and why? What is a socio-political explanation for the similar patterns of agriculture that are found is similar climate zones around the world? Please use specific examples from your text and from the assigned films (when possible).

Here are the films:  

California: The Immigration Dilemma http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/rough/2009/09/california_the.html 

Brazil:  Cutting the wire http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/rough/2005/12/brazil_cutting.html 

Mongolia: A land without fences http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/rough/2007/04/mongolia_land_w.html 

Japan: the slow life http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/rough/2005/11/japan_the_slow.html 

This   Land is Ours: Who should own Namibia’s farms http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/rough/2005/08/this_land_is_ou.html 

Guatemala /   Mexico: Can Fair Trade Save the Farm? http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/guatemala.mexico/ 

I'll send you the chapter copies.
