In this paper I will talk about the differences in agriculture from now and the 1900 in Texas, United States, and the World.
There has been many new inventions that have made agricultureEasier and made things more efficient. There is also either the decrease or increase ofPopulation that changes the amount of product needed. First I will talk about Texas, Texas population has increased from now and the 1900 from 3,048,710 to 28,797,290 , the amount of famers though has decreased. In the 1880s rice farming had been introduced to the costal plains and by 1910 had produces as much as nine Million bushels. By 1900 wheat had emerged as an major export.
Texas is now ranked first inThe number of cattle operations. Texas is also the top producer in cotton, sheep, mohair, Horses, hay, and goats. In Texas mechanization of farming continuously as new and larger Machines replace the manpowered ones.
The machines have decreased in the amount of man Power needed. The amount crops able to be grown in Texas has also increased. Now i will talk about the United States. The United States population has increased by 76,212,168 to 325,536,595. The amount of farmers in the United states has also decreased From 29 million to 2.06 million. The machinery though has decreased in the amount of Manpower needed handle it. The amount of different crops able to grow has increased.
The united states is the number one producer of corn in the world. The united states produces Almost 1.88 billion bushels of corn. In the 1900 most of the United States population were farmers, but now only about two precent of the United States are farmers. In the 1900 there Was a lot less people to provide food for but now in 2017 there is alot more people to providefood for and it is only going to get larger. More human settlement now has been built in the United States, fro example stores, schools, and homes etc.
Which decreases the amount of Farming land for farmers to farm on, which makes it harder to produce food with the Deceasing of land.
