Despite the ever increasing number of people who decide to move from the rural to have a taste of the urban life, it cannot be denied that farming is something that will not be a total threat to urbanization.
More or less our main concern is on the fact that a considerable number of the population decided to leave their jobs as farmers to try their luck in finding non-farming jobs. If this goes on, would there be adequate food to feed everybody?
Even if the world is constantly developing or progressing, it will not make any sense if food, healthy food at that, will no longer be accessible to all. Because of progress, the world may be able to afford to pay for the food they are going to eat but if the farmers gradually start to lose interest in farming or agriculture, then people might have to endure the consequences of modernization and urbanization. Our hope lies on the rest of the farmers who weren’t thinking about switching to a different career. Fortunately, because of progress and modernization, technology has made way for efficient forestry and agriculture equipment such as farm tractors (john deere, caterpillar and other famous brands), plows, tillers, loaders and other farming related innovations to help them deliver the best of their production.
Even rich people who decide to move out of the city because they want to live in a peaceful, healthy and stress-free suburb would also know the importance of eating healthy food that they are also into farming themselves. Some of them are buying large hectares of land and devote a large area for farming and agriculture, both for consumption and commercial purposes. Soon enough, we will already solve shortage of food production if we ourselves will put an effort to produce our own food, even if our planting or farming be limited only to growing selected vegetables, crops and fruit-bearing trees in our backyard.
If it’s any consolation, statistics has it that there are quite an incredible number of forestry and agriculture equipment purchase online. The sales of tractors, plows, loaders, tillers, other farm implements and attachments have increased lately to a good extent. It is a good sign that farming still has a future.
