The Food Machine


 

Farmers in central California have noticed an increase in the cost of water over the past couple years. Most people living in California know about the drought that has stricken the state this decade. It’s my understanding this is part of the reason the price for water is so high because created by scarcity due to drought. Shasta Dam and lake provide much of the water for California’s agriculturally rich central valley along with other lakes and dams along the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Farmers in California use 80% of the state’s water, but they maximize the use. Due the drought not providing snowmelt, the water supply has reached a new low. Now that we know where the water is coming from, let’s look at the crops that get produced and how that supply chain works.

Since the Green Revolution, crops being mass-produced across the United States have quadrupled. In the Midwest, what were homesteads have transformed the land and properties into industrial farms. In central California, the open air climate complemented by the sun and soil is producing 1/3 of the world’s vegetables. It’s not only vegetables that are being produced in the millions of tons. Central California is also home to the most food processing plants in the United States where $1.5 billion is being made. The green revolution helped the land in California be used by putting the seeds on steroids and making the crops resistant to insects. However, back in the Midwest, the plains and the crops are now triple yielding by way of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. These elements were byproducts of the green revolution and have quadrupled productivity with virtually no labor. The circular fields in the central United States can be seen when flying in airplanes, these fields are intricate agricultural technology called Center-pivot irrigation. It’s efficient and makes use of every inch of arable land. An insect called the European Cornboar threatens cornfields; the farmers are using GMO’s to defend their crops. Farmers who use them in order to protect crops from insects like the cornboar are defending the takeover of GMO’s. Another takeover is happening agricultural societies, urban farming. Urban farmers do not use GMO’s, instead the use homemade compost, not pesticides. They sell their organic fruits and vegetables at local farmer’s markets.

The food machine has taken over the United States since the green revolution has globalized the food market and made it easy to eat anything, any time. The farmers and their water in California to the cornfields in the Midwest all play vital factors in this machine. Corn is the most consumed product in America. It’s so widely consumed and not many know that it’s in the food they’re eating. Corn is grown and processed everyday, all 322 millions tons of it. Corn is in 1/3rd of the food products we eat. The majority of corn is being fed to cattle. Cows normal diet does not consist of corn, but farmers have changed that because corn gets them fat. The more fat the cattle gets, the more money the farmers get from selling parts of the cow. This helps the consumers and the producers, the mass industrialization of beef, as well as chicken, has made it affordable.
