Summary
From the first season of the TV series, JOURNEY TO PLANET EARTH, produced by Marilyn and Hal Weiner in association with South Carolina ETV and aired on PBS, LAND OF PLENTY, LAND OF WANT investigates a fundamental dilemma facing farmers throughout the world: how to feed Earth's growing population without endangering the environment. Zimbabwe: Affected by climate change and the vestiges of colonial rule, small scale farmers on marginal lands struggle to survive a drought. France: The remote mountain villages of central France suffer the loss of farmers fleeing to places like Brittany where intensive agriculture has polluted the water and affected local fisheries. China: An agricultural revolution has enabled farmers to feed the world's most populous nation, but an industrial boom is rapidly displacing agricultural land, forcing farmers to work the soil more intensively, threatening environmental damage. United States: In Iowa, farmers use high technology to dramatically increase yields, whie in Pennsylvania, no-till farming preserves some of the richest topsoil in the world
