Abstract

Using technological changes in wheat harvest, the formation and transformation of the cotton culture, the impact of the Green Revolution in Malaya, and genetic engineering as examples, this article explores the positive and negative impacts of science and technology applied to agriculture. The limited and considered use of science and technology by the Amish suggests an alternative to the uncritical adoption of capital-intensive farming methods that cause human displacement and ecological damage. Larger farm operations and the substitution of technological expertise for husbandry distances farmers from their land and crops and sometimes leaves an ethical void.
