85,802.  There are no miracles in agricultural production.  (Production & Agriculture)  Norman Borlaug

 

 

5,745.  It’s usually called the agricultural revolution.  But I think it’s something much wider - the biological revolution.  (Evolution & Human Being & Agriculture)  Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man: The Harvest of the Seasons 2/13

 

5,746.  It became necessary for man to settle.  (Evolution & Human Being & Agriculture)  ibid.

5,759.  At the heart of the terraced culture is the system of irrigation.  (Evolution & Agriculture & Human Being)  ibid.

 

5,760.  What is a city?  It is a community which lives on a base of agriculture.  (Evolution & City & Agriculture & Human Being)  ibid.

 

 

36,450.  The 10 largest antitrust law firms in the United States have gone into the federal courts charging Monsanto with creating a global conspiracy in violation of the antitrust laws, to control the global market in seeds.  (Conspiracy & Corporation & Agriculture)  Jeremy Rifkin

 

 

74,548.  My name is Jimmy Doherty and this is my farm.  A hundred and twenty acres of rural Suffolk where we raise our livestock the old fashioned way.  (GM Food & Farm & Agriculture)  Horizon: Jimmy’s GM Food Fight, 2008

61,593.  We are beginning to see a levelling-off of agricultural yields. (People & Earth & Agriculture)  David Attenborough, Horizon: How Many People Can Live on Planet Earth?

 

 

62,669.  Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds – it’s the production of food and fibre from the world's land and waters.  Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university, church or army.  Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.  Allan Savory

 

 

62,673.  Agriculture is the most destructive industry that we have.  More than coal mining and other extractive industries.  Allan Savory

 

 

62,670.  The discovery of agriculture was the first big step toward a civilized life.  (Agriculture & Civilisation)  Arthur Keith

 

 

62,671.  Of course, with agriculture came the first big civilizations, the first cities built of mud and brick, the first empires.  And it was the administers of these empires who began hiring people to keep track of the wheat and sheep and wine that was owed and the taxes that was owed on them by making marks; marks on clay in that time.  (Agriculture & Civilisation)  Howard Rheingold

 

 

62,672.  With the introduction of agriculture mankind entered upon a long period of meanness, misery, and madness, from which they are only now being freed by the beneficent operation of the machine.  (Agriculture & Machine)  Bertrand Russell

 

 

62,674.  Modern agriculture has been accurately described as a way of turning oil into food.  As the price of oil continues to rise, so will the price of food.  (Agriculture & Food)  Jeremy Grantham 

 

 

62,675.  Someday we shall look back on this dark era of agriculture and shake our heads.  How could we have ever believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?  Jane Goodall, Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating

 

 

62,676.  An agricultural life is one eminently calculated for human happiness and human virtue.  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

62,677.  Agriculture not only gives riches to a nation, but the only riches she can call her own.  Samuel Johnson

 

 

73,159.  Airborne fluorides have caused more worldwide damage to domestic animals than any other air pollutant.  (Fluoride & Agriculture)  US Department of Agriculture 1970

 

 

73,160.  Certainly, there has been more litigation on alleged damage to agriculture by fluoride than all other pollutants combined.  (Fluoride & Agriculture)  Dr Leonard Weinstein, Cornell University 1983

 

 

73,219.  Another United Nations organisation calculated that 0.5 per cent of world spending on weapons of destruction, often mass destruction, would be enough to provide the investment in agriculture in the stricken continent of Africa sufficient to produce enough food easily to feed the entire African population. 0.5 per cent!  A tiny fragment of the money devoted to killing could save the lives of millions and millions of people!  Yet the ‘free market’ keeps it firmly locked up in bombs and bullets.  At the same time it has ruthlessly cut production in the fertile farmlands of the United States of America.  It has even launched a campaign to cut off funds from the United Nations agencies which have the effrontery to reveal the full horror of free-market priorities.

 

Everywhere, the discrepancy gapes so wide that even the blindest believer in the free market cannot avoid it.  The human race now has at its disposal more than enough technology, raw materials, knowledge and imagination to fulfil everyone’s basic needs without difficulty.  As the man from the FAO said, there would be ‘no problem’ in doubling food production, no problem for that matter in providing the people of the world with food, clothing, shelter, heat and light, not to mention education, health, and transport.  (Food & Agriculture & Africa)  Paul Foot, The Case for Socialism ch4

 

 

74,524.  Agricultural bio-technology will find a supporter within the White House next year, regardless of which candidate wins the election in November.  (Genetically Modified Food & Agriculture & Pharmaceutics)  Monsanto in-house newsletter 6th October 2000
