March 24, 2010

As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.  The beauty and expressiveness of the image is taken one step further in the case of infographics.  Here are our favorite 8 infographics about farm and agriculture that we hope you enjoy:

1 – Thank you very much-o, Mr. Robot-o!

Seriously, this infographic quickly shows the major idea that the wave of the future certainly do include farming.  Future farming concepts include Vertical Farming, where staple crops could be grown in environmentally friendly skyscrapers, or No-Till Farming, where direct mulching of waste plant matter let farmers plant seeds without using a plow to turn the soil.

2 – New Urbanism – Can it include gardening?

Yes, and not your garden variety gardening, either!  Wikipedia explains: “The Garden city movement is an approach to urban planning that was founded in 1898 by Sir Ebenezer Howard in theUnited Kingdom. Garden cities were intended to be planned, self-contained, communities surrounded by greenbelts, containing carefully balanced areas of residences, industry, and agriculture.” Be sure to click through to that link because there are even more cool infographics to check out.

3 – Percent of Agriculture Population in the Yunnan Province

What you don’t necessarily see in this infographic is the amazingly rich old/new art form of Chinese Folk Painting.  Chinese Folk Painting, or Chinese Peasant Painting, reflects both styles and scenes of the peasants’ lives in the vast countryside of China.  Keep in mind that this includes 800 million of the Chinese population, which is what the infographic does show.
