FarmingVideo Cassette - 1999
Before food gets into your kitchen, before it even get to the store, it's on a farm. Nowadays, farmers are agricultural scientists, working hard to keep their farms healthy. Soil is tlled and aerated, fertilized and watered. Plants need to be protected from pests, with either chemical pesticides, or biological pesticides such as bats and insects that eat other insects. Animals are milked, corralled, fed and cleaned-up afterwards. Farms can take up large areas of land that were once homes to wild animals. Some farms use a lot of commercial pesticides that can cause water pollution, but farms provide food for millions of people.
