Presentation of the History of Spanish agriculture from a biophysical perspective, 1900-2010

Food for debate on November 26 at the Cronopios bookstore

Agricultural production experienced impressive growth during the twentieth century, which allowed to guarantee the supply of food to the population and even transform some crops into important chapters of foreign trade. But it also shows that successive increases in production and productivity were achieved at the expense of farmers and the agroecosystems themselves. Professors Lourenzo Fernández Prieto, David Soto (University of Santiago de Compostela) and Manuel González de Molina (Pablo de Olavide University) will talk about this and much more, in the Cronopios bookstore next Tuesday, November 26 at 7:30 p.m.

In this meeting, in addition to the debate itself, the work “History of Spanish agriculture from a biophysical perspective, 1900-2010” will be presented, edited by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
