•Negotiations are critical in society.

It also refers to the source of income that producers, such as farm-ers, are earning from what the grow. All the products and services that are re-ceived by the consumers are also part of this.2.Is multifunctionality a ‘beast of burden’? Explain your answer.Multifunctionality is a beast of burden. It is because they are considered to helpwith the products that farmers make. They are mainly used to help transport goods that are being sold.
3.Do you see a conflict between ethics and science in informing decisions made in agriculture? Explain your position.Yes, I believe that there is a conflict between ethics and science in informing de-cisions made in agriculture. Science has shown to be able to create items that allow for products to grow faster, but at the same time can affect the food. This allows farmers to grow food at a much faster rate and make more profit. How-ever, ethically this is not the right thing to do because people’s health can be at risk. I think that farmers need to worry more about ethics and not the advan-tages that science brings.
