In the lesson we learned that corn production and average corn yield have been increasing over time. Since 1955, corn grain yields in the U.S. have increased at a fairly constant 1.9 bushels per acre per year, sustained primarily by continued improvements in genetics and crop production technologies. For this reflection, we want you to research one of these improvements in greater depth. Your options are:
o Remote sensing technology
o Genetic modification
o Variable rate technology
After you do some reading, tell us:
• The selected technology, and what it is/what it's designed to do (What problem does it solve? How does it increase corn yields or profits?)
• Some history (When was it first developed? How has it changed over the years?)
The response should include a reference list. Using one-inch margins, Times New Roman 12 pnt font, double-space and APA style of writing and citations.
