Description by OLDIES.com:

It is the industry that feeds the world, an industry so efficient that, in America at least, it is possible never to think about it. But behind your fully-stocked local market stands an extraordinarily sophisticated network that has revolutionized every step from seed to shelf.

From the field to the table, FARMING TECHNOLOGY follows the journey of food produced on a modern, "big ag" farm to illustrate how far farming has come from its traditional roots. From the controversial use--but undeniable impact--of genetically engineered seeds to the $100,000 machines that can do more work in a day than an army of workers could accomplish in a week, MODERN MARVELS examines the technological tools that have propelled the industry to a crossroads of declining returns, higher yields and the demise of family farms.

Product Description:
