By Carroll Rudman and Trevor De Ghenghi


The facts and statistics of Mali has helped us to understand the long term and world-wide impact of the agricultural revolution, by examining what they eat.

Charts Comparing Mali to the U.S.

Major Ports influences how Malians eat because this shows how imported food comes into the country. This can give the Malians a bigger variety of food, but since there are only 21 ports, they don't have as many ships coming in as the USA. This gives the USA more places to receive food. Also, the irrigated land is important because this shows how much land each country has that is usable to farm on for their food production. The United States has twenty million more area of irrigated land than Mali. Lastly, the population is important to influencing what Malians eat because their may be a shortage in food or not enough food for everyone, which leads to not getting the right nutrition.
