Since the 1900’s the world’s population has expanded greatly. With more people there is a higher, and faster demand for food. But this demand cannot be fulfilled with old technology. In Texas, most of the state was farmland in the early 1900’s but as population started growing it’s farm land was decreasing. So Texas farmers were going to have to find a way to grow more crop in a smaller space. Fertilizer was now starting to make its way in the agricultural world. It helped farmers get more out of their crop, even if their in a smaller space. This helped the farmers globally because they didn’t need as big of a farm for a large mass of crop. The United States is considered a more developed country which means we have better technology than most country’s. Better technology will allow for a crop to be planted, harvested, and plowed faster. The faster things like that are done on a farm the faster the food gets to its selling point. With the bigger population food will need to be distributed faster. New technology like diesel powered tractors have allowed for seeding and plowing to go much quicker. The plow, used to be pulled by a horse or a donkey. Now there pulled with 450 horsepower machines thats will cost you close to $200,000. For example the John Deere 9420 is the most common tractor you will see pulling the 70ft John Deere plow. With just one pass the John Deere has gone 70x faster than the donkey has. Although some countries in the world are still using old technology such as the scythe. Kenya is an example of one of those countries, they are so undeveloped that they have to collect rain water so they can water there plants when it hasn’t rained. This makes there job very difficult but since they still have a family and other people in their community that need to be fed they take that challenge with the little technology they have. As the days go by though, the more technology comes out such as, stacked farming. Stacked farming is farms being stacked ontop of each other to conserve space but also allow for plenty of crop to grow. Stacked farmingwould look just like any other ordinary building though so it could be just about anywhere. Water, we love it and use it like its unlimited. But as our population grows, the water
