The the 1900s from only one reason,

The world of agriculture has changed in many ways in todays world since the 1900s. In Texas, the number of farms has decreased from 420,000 in 1940 to 241,500 in 2016, with an average size of 537 acres. The number of small farms are still increasing, but all most all of them are operated by part time farmers and ranchers. Mechanical ways of farming has Turned into new and bigger machines that have taken over machines operated by man. Although machinery prices are high compared to the 1900s, machines are technology advanced, and are far better than the old machines Changes in Texas agriculture over the last 50 years include better record keeping that helps in managing and marketing decisions, and more restrictions on choices made or decisions by the government. And new technology using computers, satellites, and other electrical stuff. Farms have become smaller and more expensive to own, but are getting more productive. Pest and disease control have improved throughout Texas, and also livestock and poultry. The farming practices have changed drastically from the 1900s from only one reason, technology. Technology has not only helped Texas, but the whole entire world has benefitted from it. The increased population has caused a problem because there is few farmers in todays world than when there was later in the day.   The changes in agriculture world wide are that there is less and less food for the world  which is making a lot of people in other countries than America, have not as much food. There  is currently over 7.3 billion people in the world today, and it is estimated that there will be over  8.5 billion in 2030, and 9.7 in 2050. With less farmers than the 1900s, which there were many  fewer people, there isn’t a lot of food for everyone. Although there are fewer farms today, they  are a lot bigger and produce a whole lot more food than the 1900s. With the help of technology, todays farmers can feed at least 155 people, where in the 1940s farms could only feed about 19. In a little less than 13 years, we will need about %15 percent more food than what we produce today. People don’t necessary want to work on farms, and live in rural areas
