Agriculture as Industry

Agriculture as Industry

Professor Glenn Stone provides a brief history of industrial agriculture in the U.S., from the first era of hyper-industrialization shortly after World War II to the use of antibiotics in today's factory farms. Listen in to find out how the ongoing debates over food production got started and consider why these debates continue to be so important. Stone writes about food, farming, and biotechnology on his blog, fieldquestions.

"Agriculture as Industry" first aired in fall 2012 as part of Hold That Thought's Farms/Food series.
