PS 3210 - Global Crop Ecology

Why do farmers grow what they grow where they grow it? How might a good growing season in a country like Brazil be a cause of concern for a soybean producer in the United States? If rice is so important to the Asian diet, why is China the greatest producer of wheat? Students investigate how different soils, climates, economic conditions, and cultures determine the dominant crop species of various regions of the world. Discussion of modern land-use policy and international trade agreements are included.

Prerequisite(s): PS 2202 - Field Crops I  or LAES 2004 - Soils .
