Texas songwriter Andy Wilkinson -- a direct descendant of legendary cattleman Charlie Goodnight -- penned, "If God believed in fences, we would not have the wind." Wind is both a blessing and a curse. In this area, south winds spell moisture and humidity. Crop disease spores and insects carry northward, which are major threats during the summer months for grain farmers. In the winter, it means more moisture, which translates into snow -- and drifting, lots of it. Driveways and roads blow shut.
Agriculture has changed dramatically the last few decades due to new technologies, mechanization, increased chemical use, and government policies that have favored maximizing production. These changes have allowed fewer farmers to produce the majority of the food and fiber in the U.S. Though change often brings advancement, it typically brings risks as well. Most important among these are the decline of the family farm, the break down of the economic and social conditions in rural communities, topsoil depletion, and groundwater contamination.
