A. Agribusiness is defined as agriculture that is conducted on commercial principles especially when using advanced technology (normally an organization engages in this).
Specialized farm products are mainly used on commercial agricultural farms but subsistence farmers may use them as well. Specialized farm products include machinery such as tractors, fertilizers or pesticides. These products can benefit your farm by producing more yields per area and also by removing weeds and other organisms that don’t help a farmers crop.
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are or were regular organisms that have been taken into laboratories and “operated on.” Scientists exchange the DNA data of one organism with another only hoping that this new data can benefit a farmer’s yield.
Organic is basically a crop that is produced without the usage of chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides or any other artificial chemicals.
Sustainable agriculture is a special method that farmers use. This method involves a safe way of the production of crops or livestock without damaging the physical environment such as the farms ecosystem: the soil, water supply, biodiversity and other natural surroundings.
B. Monsanto would be the big, organized company that gets involved with other smaller commercial farms. Eventually the smaller farms would join together with Monsanto, only making their business bigger. In the article, one of the biggest cons of agribusiness was that a Monsanto truck drove past a farm and some of their seeds flew into the other farmer’s farm. The Monsanto seed ended up mixing with the non-Monsanto seed. The crop was impure because of the mixed breeding between organic and nonorganic seed causing the birth of a new generation. Monsanto claimed that the whole new generation of crops was their property because the seed was theirs to begin with. This caused a lot of farmer’s to go bankrupt because they had to pay Monsanto back for “stealing their...
