Lesson Notes Changes and Challanges Recent changes in arable farming Most of the changes are associated with the growth of agribusiness. Agribusiness is a term, used to describe all business associated with agriculture or farming. Like food production, seed supply, farm machinery, agrichemicals, wholesale and distribution, processing, marketing and sales. - farms are owned by big companies and corporations, like food processing firms, supermarkets, insurance companies etc.
-hedgerows have been removed from most farms, allowing access for huge farm machinery, which have increased in since they have been modernized
-farms have merged to make even bigger farms, so now they're almost huge farm/factories Challanges -adapting and modernizing farm equipment and systems
-getting back in profits, from what is invested Agribusiness Cycle Arable farming is mostly concentrated in central Europe. The optimal place for arable farming is in a low flat region. The climate also affects where arable farms are placed. The weather needs to be warm and dry. The land needs to be very fertile for maximum efficiency.
