My mentor was my dad. He farms in Hartley, IA, with his uncle and neighbor. This is what he said. "I use math to calculate yield. Bushels divided by acres. I also use math to find population. I count seeds in 17 feet and multiple by my acres. Math for farming is extremely important. I use it everyday."
The year of a Farmer
spring and summer
Planting, spraying and irrigating crops.
Harvesting and tilling ground.
Fix machinery, sell crops and plan for next year.
types of farmers
1. Crop farmers grow grains, fibers, vegetables and fruits.
2. Aquaculture farmers raise fish and shell fish.
3. Horticulture farmers grow grasses, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and fruits.
4. Livestock, dairy and poultry farmers raise animals.
I would be a crop farmer. Maybe a Horticulture farmer but I'm pretty sure I would just go with crop farmer.
