A Catalyst article explaining how much of the food that humans consume comes from systems in which large numbers of plants or animals are grown under closely controlled conditions, designed to maximise production. When they grow plants as crops farmers intervene in various ways to optimise growth, so that the food is produced as quickly and cheaply as possible. This article looks at two intensive crop production systems which illustrate key points in the GCSE course.
