Agriculture, Food and Natural Resource Standards
 FPP.04.02. Evaluate the significance and implications of changes
and trends in the food products and processing industry in the
local and global food systems.
 Sample Measurement: The following sample measurement strands

Objective One
Define Quality of Life
Quality of life?
 Which standard would you prefer?
Quality of Life
 Having adequate supplies of the basic needs
of food, clothing and shelter.
 The ag. industry provides the food and fiber
required by people.
 Agriculture allows people to enjoy a higher
quality of life.
Quality of Life
 Americans spend 11% of their total
income on food.

over 80% of income on food.

more money on clothing shelter, and
Compare our Food Dollar to other
International Trade
 American agriculture helps provide
food and fiber for many people in other
 International trade is the buying and
selling of commodities by two or more
 Exports are goods sold to another country.
 Corn, soybeans, rice and wheat are
examples of important American
agriculture exports.
 The success of American agriculture is
largely dependent on its exports.
 Commodities bought from other
countries are called imports.
 Major American agricultural imports
are bananas, coffee, shrimp, and vanilla.
 Good jobs help people enjoy a better quality
of life as well.
 The American agriculture industry provides
jobs for about 16 out of every 100 people in
our country.
 This is higher than any other industry in the
Objective Two
Discuss Modern Agriculture’s
Role in Basic Human Nutrition
What Role Does Agriculture Play In
Basic Human Nutrition?
 Today, one American farmer feeds over 130 people.
 Consumers have a year-round, wide variety of inexpensive,
quality foods to choose from.
 We don’t always make nutritious choices.
Food Guide Pyramid

 Contains 5 nutritional groups
 Recommends types of foods from each group for healthy
 Nutritional fact labels must also be present on all processed
food products
Five Nutritional Groups

 Vegetables
 Milk
 Meat
Other Factors Effecting Healthy Eating

 Your Body Size
Objective Three
List Ag Products Used To Provide
What Ag Products Provide Food?
 Grains
 Fruits
 Vegetables
 Milk
 Meat
 Nuts
Grain Crops
 Grains are grown throughout the U.S.
 The largest region of production is in the Midwest
 Grains are used for bread, pasta, rice, cereal, and many other
food products
 Wheat, rye and corn are examples of grains
 Citrus (grapefruit, oranges, tangelos,
lemons, limes) are grown in Florida,
California, or imported
 Blueberries are grown in Michigan
 Apples are grown in many states
 Fruits are sold fresh or as processed juice
 Cool weather vegetables (like lettuce
and broccoli) are grown in northern
states in summer and southern states in
 Many vegetables are imported from
South America and Mexico
 Dairy foods are processed from milk.
 Most milk comes from cattle on dairy farms.
 Another source of milk is goats.
 California and Wisconsin are leading dairy
producing states. New Mexico quite often leads the
nation in the amount of milk produced per cow!
 Includes poultry
 Beef
 Pork
 Fish, and
 Lamb
 Poultry Includes domesticated birds grown

 Chickens also produce most of the eggs
consumed in the country.

 Steak and hamburger are popular beef
 Pork is meat from swine.
 Swine is a term to describe hogs and
 Pork chops, bacon, and sausage are
popular pork dishes.

the production of fish and other aquatic
plants and animals
 Fish are farmed in the ocean, ponds, and
 Fish are harvested, processed and sold
either fresh or frozen.
 Lamb refers to meat from sheep less than a
year old.
 Mutton is from sheep that are over a year
 Compared to beef, pork and poultry,
Americans consume relatively little lamb
and mutton.
 Each year, about 430,000 tons of nuts are
produced in the United States.
 The four major types of nuts produced are
almonds, pecans, walnuts, and filberts
 New Mexico is one of the top two states in
pecan production.
Objective Four
List Ag Products Used For
Clothing is Made From Natural and
Synthetic Fiber
 Natural fiber comes from plants and
animals. ( mostly wool and cotton )
 Synthetic fibers are manufactured from
petroleum and other substances
Examples of Natural Fibers
 Cotton
 Flax
 Kenaf
 Jute
 Hemp and Sisal
 Wool and Fur
 Cotton is a perennial plant that is grown as
an annual.
 Cotton requires a long, warm growing
 Top cotton producing states are California,
Texas and Arizona.
 Cotton is picked by large machines that remove
the lint from the bolls
 The cotton is taken to the gin to remove the seeds
 Seeds are used for cooking oil or livestock feed
 Lint is pressed, graded, and milled into cloth
 Flax plants produce fibers
used in making high quality
cloth called linen
 Flax requires a rainy and
warm climate
 Minnesota, North and South
Dakota grow substantial
amounts of flax
 Flax plants grow about three feet tall
 Linen comes from the fibers that make up
the phloem of the plant
 Fibers are rolled and later combed to be
spun into yarn
 Flax seed is used to make linseed oil for
paints and varnishes
Kenaf, Jute, Hemp and Sisal
 Kenaf is a relatively new plant that is used to
make cloth and paper
 Jute plant fiber is used to make burlap
 Hemp and Sisal are coarse fibers used to
make rope
Wool and Fur
 Sheep and goat fleece are
sheared, cleaned, dyed, and
woven into threads
 Angora goat fleece is woven into
 Fur is used to produce hats,
coats, and other clothing. Rabbit
and mink are two examples of
fur used in clothing
Synthetic Fibers
 Rayon, nylon and polyester fibers are
processed from petroleum products.
 Synthetic fibers are more durable and
wrinkle less than natural fiber.
 Natural fiber is more comfortable.
 Cloth today is often a blend of both natural
and synthetic fiber.
Objective Five
List Ag Products Used For Shelter
 Forestry involves planting, caring for, and
harvesting trees.
 There are about 736 million acres of forest
land in the United States.
 Products like plywood, particle board,
veneer, and paper are used for shelter.
Hardwood and Softwood Trees
 Hardwood trees are deciduous--they lose
their leaves in the fall
 Softwood trees are conifers. Conifers are
evergreen trees that have cones and needles
rather than leaves
 Trees are felled (cut down)
and cut into log lengths of
12 to 20 feet
 At the saw mill, logs are cut
into boards and graded
 Lumber is cut while still
 Lumber must be seasoned.
Seasoning is the natural or
artificial drying of the
 Natural drying involves allowing air to circulate
around and through stacks of lumber
 Artificial drying uses heat and is faster
 Lumber is smoothed and sized. Planing involves
removing the roughness left from sawing
 Smaller trees are used for paper.
 Wood is broken into small pieces and soaked in a
chemical bath to make pulp.
 Pulp is screened, washed and drained.
 Fibers are then rolled and dried.
 Fibers bond together during drying.
