Clark 1 Tyler Clark Dr. Reeves Biol 115 Hybrid Section #5057 6 April 2015 Reading Assignment 2: “ Biology in Society #2 1.) How has government policy in Europe and the United States led to sharp differences in the adoption of no-till agriculture? Well in Europe the government doesn’t seem to be backing no-till conservation efforts, if they were, the government would be giving subsidies to farmers who are attempting to make the switch to the healthier alternative. The switch however is not easy, and in some cases can be detrimental to someone’s sustainable crop, such as the other famer in Palouse in the 1980s. Even though the government in Europe isn’t completely backing no till, that doesn’t mean that the movement isn’t starting. There is a large amount of people in certain countries such as United States, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and Australia that are making the move from the traditional ways of tillage on the soil, to the new more health conscience way

Unformatted text preview: of no-till and this is good because in the past it seemed as if people were actually moving away from that method and using the more harmful techniques of growing crops on their farms, which is understandable when some of the stories that you hear are about no-till farmers going under. It is also understandable when certain farmers in less developed countries want to make the switch but they cant because they either don’t have access to the newer and more advanced pesticides or even just because there in more work and effort that go into no-till. If I was a Clark 2 farmer with a sustainable crop and it was doing just fine with my regular way of tilling soil I would most likely not want to make the switch just because I wouldn’t want to sign up for the extra work, but if the government were to offer me subsidies for trying to switch to the healthier alternative I might be more inclined to make the switch and start using the healthier alternative....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
