Man has been cultivating the land for 11 000 years and it has been 2500 years since he has been using a plough. By 1950 half of the arrable land of the world has become unsuitable for cultivation due to increasingly intensive agricultural technologies. The most profound arguments for intensive technology is that such a mass of people can't be supplied with food using other methods. Because of employing tillage, artificial fertilisers and other chemicals the topsoil is getting thinner and thinner.
