  1. 1. *objective *The environmental technological, economic and social factors which influence the distribution of different types and systems of farming *The factors which influence the patterns of agricultural output and trade. *New agricultural techniques which increase yields.
  2. 2. *Outcome *ALL: all students are able to make simple identification as well as identify factors that influence the patterns of agriculture. *MOST: students are able to work on skill of interpretation. *SOME: students are able to develop a sustainable plan.
  3. 3. What is Ploughing? • Ploughing is when you dig the soil making it loose. • This brings the nutrients (all the goods things in soil) to the top and pushes the bad things (like weeds and seeds and old soil) to the bottom. • Loosening the soil also means that water can get to the seeds instead of running off the top.
  4. 4. What is Sowing? • sowing is when the farmers put seeds in the soil they have ploughed. • The seeds are then covered with soil and watered. • The seeds are then left to grow. • It needs three things to help it grow; water, soil, sunlight.
  5. 5. What is Harvesting? • Plants have matured when they are fully grown and ready to eat. • When the crop has matured its get collected from the fields and this is harvesting. • It then gets graded (sorting the good crop from the bad) and packed ready for people to buy and eat.

  8. 8. Old Farming Methods *Mostly small sized farms. *People and animals are used to do a lot of the work. *Old farms have a small yield (this means they produce less crops). *Old farms use less technology so a lot more of their plants die. New Farming Methods *Very large Farms. *Machines used to do the ploughing, planting and harvesting. *New farms have a big yield (this means they produce a lot of crops). *New farms use a lot of technology so the risk of their crop failing is not as high
