Sustainability issues in American Agriculture: 2015 Update
Dr. Cross will examine several important issues in agriculture including: Why is the number of U.S. farmers falling? What are the influences of weather and climate on agricultural production? What impacts do drought and wildfires in California have upon America’s agriculture? What impacts will a changing climate have upon American agriculture?
This ‘quest’ to enhance your understanding of sustainability, will demonstrate that a geographic perspective, one that incorporates various temporal and spatial scales, can help bring into focus environmental issues that affect everyone.
