what the biome needs to produce foods.
The area needs to have a good vegetation cover so we know that vegetation can grow there
Good surface temperature, so it wont be to hot or to cold.
Good rainfall is also needed, the amount is depending on what food is being grown
What types of food grow in different areas?
Most food grows in grassland/tropical savannah and tropical rainforests for example: cocoa beans, palm oil, rice, corn, sugar cane, bananas and tea leaves.
What do humans exploit in order to produce foods in the biomes?
We are exploiting this by taking away the good soil and vegetation growth to grow our food.
Where rice grows:
The top 5 rice producing countries are
Bangladesh, Cambodia,China, India and Indonesia.
What conditions are needed to grow rice?
100 cm to 200 cm
rice is grown well on the alluvial soil or on the fertile river basins. It is also grown in mixed soil or loamy and clayey soil.
16°C – 27°C
What technological factors influence the agricultural yield for your chosen food?
Technology is altering the biome by flooding an area where grass grows and isn’t used to having a lot of water using irrigation will then be drying out another biome.
Low flying planes, rototillers with diesel-powered engines, conveyor belt of a diesel-powered tractor are some machines that help to harvest rice at a faster rate so it takes less time to grow.
What is rice used for and where is it going?
Rice pudding cups
How do we alter the biomes
to produce food?
We add and takeaway water between different biomes using irrigation and removing existing vegetation growth to create enough room to produce the food in bulk.
