an everyday science that effects everyone
When people think of agriculture, they often visualize a farm. While it is true that agriculture mainly effects those who take part in the business themselves, it does effect consumers directly. Think about it this way-- if growing cotton suddenly requires more chemicals and fertilizers, the cost of the product would increase; thus, the cost of common cotton goods such as clothing and bedding would rise. The science that goes into growing cotton must be carefully and thoughtfully conducted in order to make this resource available to the public with ease.
