4 types of subsistence agriculture regions
4 Types of Subsistence Agriculture Regions
  • Shifting Cultivation (slash-and-burn agriculture)- fields are cleared by slashing the vegetation and burning the debris
  • Swidden- the cleared area of land
    • Can only support crops for 3 years
  • Slowly disappearing and being replaced by logging, cattle ranching, and cash crops
pastoral nomadism
Pastoral Nomadism
  • Pastoral Nomadism- based on the herding of domesticated animals
    • Adapted to dry climates where crop planting is impossible
    • Consume mainly grain- typically their animals are not slaughtered
    • 15 million people today
intensive subsistence
Intensive Subsistence
  • Intensive Subsistence agriculture- when farmers must expend a relatively large amount of effort to produce the maximum feasible yield from a parcel of land
    • Occur where there is large populations and not much arable land
plantation
Plantation
  • Plantation- a large farm that specializes in one or two crops and the crops are usually sold to MDCs
    • Many LDCs have plantations where they are owned and operated by Europeans or N. Americans
