-Expand facilities to sell products, extension of land use and technology
-Money for better technique, research, and teaching methods of farming -Regional & National World's View What's Going to Happen World's View - Regional
-Invest better research and development of fertilizers
-Reduce the use of harmful fertilizers
-Modernize farms What's Going to Happen - Modern machinery, industrial farms
-Wants to modernize
-Less dependent on hand work Africa -No double-cropping; no consistancy Asia Australia South America North
