The growth of organic farming has renewed research in alternative technologies such as integrated pest managementselective breeding, [80] and controlled-environment agriculture.

Now, many of the countries which were once colonies of Europe, especially those in Central America, are still heavily involved in the same types of agricultural production as they were hundreds of years ago.

Hybrid wheat has been a limited commercial success in Europe particularly Francethe United States and South Africa.

Ploughs appear in pictographs around 3, BC; seed-ploughs around 2, BC.

In less developed countries, traditional techniques keep production lower. Techniques include summer fallow rotation in which one crop is grown on two seasons' precipitation, leaving standing stubble and crop residue to trap snowand preventing runoff by terracing fields.

The wheat belt is identified as crossing the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Soil builder and organic matter source.The Natural History of Wheat Wheat's beginnings can be traced to a clan of wild grasses called Triticeae, the seeds of which had a flavor that was pleasing to primitive people.
