Cultivation and adaptation: an essay in the sociology of agriculture

, : Cultivation and adaptation: an essay in the sociology of agriculture. Sociologia Ruralis 21(2): 160-182

Cultivators have provided essential links in the development of ecosystems and social systems, by way of continuous innovative adaptations. Crop cultivation practices can be studied as one such adaptation. Analysis shows that in recent times significant changes have taken place in crop characteristics, due to crop adaptation to market conditions or 'mercantization'. Such changes in crop characteristics may be more important than quantitative changes like increased crop yields.
